Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
As you probably know, in a dual-boot setup where you have 2 OS's on one drive, you will get a menu at boot from which you can choose which OS you want to load. However even if your bios would allow you set HDD #2 as your 2nd boot device, the only way you could ever boot from that device would be if power was removed from HDD #1. (Perhaps one of your drives is an external drive?) Since you have an IDE/SATA configuration there may be a way to accmplish what you are trying to do - It will depend on the ASUS BIOS options.
I hate to pass the buck here, but I think that you will be able to get a prompt answer to your question by talking directly to ASAU Tech Support. I have 2 numbers for them. 812-282-2787 and 502-995-0883. Good luck...

I am suspecting that you didn't change the jumpers on the back of the hard drive to master and slave ,but that is one of the things you have to do. Then your motherboard has to have the capacity to run a program called 'Raid' which is a multiple hard drive configuration which has five choices or methods for doing so,you might want to look into it a little further.
