Hard Drive names In Bios the same

By Jaytmoon ·
In a new build I'm working on. I am using 2 identical Maxtor 200Gb sata-1 hard drives. (A dual Boot rig with XP and Vista). Although I can id the different drives within windows, I can not discern which one is which when configuring within the BIOS (boot Disk order) I know that the boot manager in Windows will ask which you want to boot from but due to a (currently) flaky Asus MoBo problem, I have been resetting the bios more than is usually nesessary. So anyway to name the drives for id in bios or am I stuck with the hunt and peck method?
