I have Windows Professional installed on the 1st hard drive with the NTFS file system.
I've just installed UBUNTU 11.10 on a second hard drive but didn't setup the dual boot during installation because I was confused that I might by accident, install on the wrong drive. So before the installation of UBUNTU, I dis-connected the 1st hard drive with WindowsXP from the power supply just to be safe.
Hi guys, i have at the moment a dual boot with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.04 each one in separate hard drives, when i installed Ubuntu it taked care of the dual boot system letting me choose wich OS to run when turned on.
Hi, my laptop contains two hard drives, both just under 1000 gigs. I'd like to dual boot both Windows 8 (what I'm currently running) and Ubuntu, but instead of partitioning one of the drives I'd like to dedicate one hard drive to each OS. I've seen tutorials for how to dual boot, but most of them explain how to do so on one hard drive.

Pardon question redundancy. I read similar, but unanswered questions involving what I'd like to do.
I have an ancient Dell desktop running XP to which I've added a second hard drive. Both drives are only 40GB each, so there is little room to crowd two OS on one drive. I had been using the second drive for backup/storage, but I'd like to put Ubuntu on it and have dual boot available.
I installed Ubuntu today for the first time on a Dell desktop running Windows XP sp3.
I opted to install on a second hard drive, following these instructions:
When I reboot my computer, and enter the boot sequence menu in BIOS, there isn't even an entry for my second hard drive.
