  1. I have 2 different operating systems on separate drives and for some reason my bios doesnt give me the option of booting from each of the hard drives, just the master.
    So at the moment I have to open my pc up and swap the cables, to boot the other HD!
    what can i do ?

    One HD is running windows 7 home ed 64-bit - Master
    the other is vista home ed 32-bit - Slave

    go into bios, and change the boot order of the drives... change the drive with the os you want to boot up to the first slot
