Boot to differant drives?

#1
I have 2 SATA hard drives, on one I have XP pro installed and on the other I have Vista Ultimate. Is there a way that I can get an option to boot to one or other without having to change the boot order in the bios ? (which I have to do at the moment)

Thanx

Yes...
when you turn your computer on, it will give You an option which one to boot from, this is the exact same set up I have.
Vista will by default be the automatic.

The XP install may still have the NT52 bootloader and if so it will not appear in the Vista boot manager. Download VistaBootPro and you should be able to get XP onto the Vista boot manager. Then you will have the menu Vanquished described.

Do I install this to the XP or Vista hard disk? or doesn't it matter.

Thanx

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
