Two Hard Drives

  1. Hi,

    This is my first post, never done this before on the internet, am wondering what sort of response there will be. Please do not rubbish me!!!

    I have another computer operating on Windows XP. I have another hard drive and would like to fit it and have it running Ubuntu. The actual fitting of the second drive is no problem but how do I arrange the controls so that I am able to switch from one OS to another.

    Is this feasible or am I barking up the wrong tree??
  2. When you install Ubuntu it will install a bootloader, GRUB, that will have a boot time menu that allows you to choose between booting Windows or Ubuntu.

    Should be pretty easy to do, even with a single harddrive. Just make sure to get the bootloader installed to the first drive in the boot-order.

    Also don't get the beta.
