how to boot two sata drives

By oinkspots ·
I havetwo sata drives, one I want for winxp, the second for win7.

I have xp on the c: drive and I installed win7 on the second drive. When I re-booted, a dos screen came up, giving me the option of booting into an earlier ver (XP) or win7.

I could not move the arrow to the earlier version (XP) and the system booted in win 7.

What can I do?

Hi Judi,

First I would remove your email address from your previous post or you will get spammed alot.

With the Keyboard it sounds to me like you have a USB keyboard attached to the system when it can take a PS2 (round connection) which can cause this.

You could try going into the BIOS and looking for a setting that has to do with a USB Keyboard support or something similar. Or you could find a keyboard with the PS2 connection (They are starting to get abit old but you can still buy them).

Thanks,

Matthew
