Answers :

Why do you what to boot up from the 2nd hard drive?
\015\012If you want to boot up with a different operating system from a 2nd drive, I suggest you set up a dual boot system with the other operating system on the 2nd drive.
\015\012When you boot up you will be given a menu and you can choose which operating system you want. There is a time delay and if you don't choose a system it will default to the first operating system on the list.
