    Anyone know if I can set up a machine to dual boot XP & Vista (XP is current OS), using two physical drives?

    I have an ap to split patitions and whatnot if I have to use the first drive for both OS's, I'm just curious if anyone has done that (If it's possible, I have no idea, I havent set up a pc to use multi-os's in quite some time)

    Thanks!

    After thinking some more, I thought about just changing the bios boot order to hit the second HDD first, but the pc i'm working with doesn't let me select a specific HDD for the boot order, so I guess that partitioning the first drive with two is the only option.

    Just install Vista onto the second drive with the XP drive connected. It'll auto-detect that the drive has XP and automatically add it to the Vista bootloader.
