✔ Best Answer
Incomplete info. Do both HDDs already have Linux installed on them? Or does one have Linux & the 2nd HDD will be added & then Linux will be installed to it? Which version(s) of Linux are you working with?

Both already have two each different Linux distros on. All 4 doing different tasks at different times. Obviously only 1 is running at once.

Yes. Let me explain like this:
1 currently each drive is in a different PC, exactly similar spec
2 I want to remove the one HDD and add the drive to the one PC.
3 it will now have 2 drives, both bootable.
4 I can use the bios to select which drive to start but then I need to be there.
5 each is has a different task at different times so I wrote some code to restart and select an is. Can't afford to crash any one, so I'm a bit scared as what will happen when I start the PC with two drives in.
I've learned that sometimes weird and not so wonderfully things can happen. I'm using mint 19.3 awesome, Sorin 15.2 also great, Pinguy, interesting but slowish and neon. As neon has some niggles it will be replaced soon with MX.
