installing 2 hard drives with same operating

January 27, 2011 at 07:35:34
Specs: Windows 7 Pro 32 Bit, E2180 Intel Pentum/2GB
I have one computer.I cloned my OS, Windows 7 Pro, from my Seagate hard drive to a Samsung hard drive using Seagate DiskWizard.
Both hard drives are connected and when I boot the one shows "C"and the other "E".
I can disconnect "C" and when I boot "E" will be the hard drive that is being used.
If I disconnect "E" then "C" will be used.

Roy you can't clone a drive and then keep it in a different position on the cable. When you clone a drive you have to REPLACE the original drive with the cloned one.

Microsoft OS's have always been based on how the computer see's the first active bootable hard drive as being C:

C: is not C: because of what is on it or any other reason other then the position in the boot order.

Roy you can not clone a disk and then leave the disk in the system in the postition it was in when cloned.

You have to take out the original drive and replace it with the cloned disk.

If you want the 2nd drive as bootable then you need to do a repair install of the 2nd install to repair the registry pointers as well as add it as a multiboot.
