Simple steps to using 2 operating systems on separate hard drives with one computer.

  1. I have a Sony Vaio VGNFS315Z with Windows XP Home. I am looking to connect a 60gb Hard Drive in a firewire enclosure which currently has the same Windows XP operating system on it. I would like to retain the use of both operating systems to preerve some of the software on the 60gb drive.

    Apart from plugging it in to the firewire port what are the steps I need to take so that my Sony Vaio will view it as a separate operating system. This will prevent me having to format it and start again.

    Thanks

    Even if your laptop supports booting from firewire hard drives, Windows doesn't.
