    2 sata hard dvies, dual boot

    Right, well basically I have a Dell dimension computer running xp home, and recently I bought another sata hard drive and installed win7 onto it, is there a way j could have an option on startup askiing which hard drive I want to boot from? I can't format the xp hard drive as it has my sisters stuff on it, I'm using two separate hard drives and not just one partitioned into twos

    Thanks in advance

    If the motherboard supports the ability to prompt for a boot device, then sure.

    -OR-

    There MIGHT be a way to add XP into the windows 7 boot manager, but im not familiar with the new manager that windows 7 has.

    But im fairly sure that this is a no go.
