Seeking details for dual booting XP Home from either of 2 hard drives. The scenario is: Have 1 60Gb drive on the mainboard IDE connection, other 40Gb on an SCSI card connection (1 CD also each in IDE & SCSI). Have a mirror image of XP on the second, SCSI drive for backup and crash protection. I can boot to the second, SCSI drive if I disconnect the main IDE drive I normally boot from, but that's the only way. Trying PowerQuest BootMagic (also have PartitionMagic). PartitionMagic sees both drives, along with the small 50Mb partition I made on the backup SCSI drive where I installed BootMagic (as FAT32). BootMagic seems to not see the second XP installation on the backup drive as an OS. If I try an Add (and Advanced) in BootMagic, it sees the second drive but doesn't recognize an OS. Questions are: 1) Any way to get BootMagic to recognize the second drive OS? 2) Why would I not be able to boot from the second drive if I changed the boot sequence in the BIOS from first device as IDE0 to IDE1? Assume because it's actually on an SCSI connection? Would I be able to do so if I changed the drive connections for both to IDE with the 2 CD drives on SCSI, and if so would a bootable CD such as XP be picked up if on the SCSI instead of IDE? 3) Anything to do with the boot.ini lines? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
