Hello, hi i have two sata drives which i have installed xp pro on both, when i boot up i press f11 to goto boot menu and then select which drive i want to boot. I use 1 for internet and the ohter for general. However in my can computer i can see both drive letters so i can see the other drive which i have not booted into. How do i change this so that what ever drive i have loaded i can only see that drive.

thanks very much

They used to make a switch that allowed one to toggle between two IDE drives. Or you can get an adapter for the drives that allows you to pull the drive out the front of a 5 1/4 inch drive bay. You buy another drive adapter for the 2nd drive and plug in only the one you want to use.
