    Dear Experts,

    I have Dell Optiplex PC with one SATA 250GB HDD installed as HDD0 it has two partitions C and D and Windows XP Professional is installed on partition C. Now I want to add another SATA HDD of may be 300GB Capacity and want to install another copy of Win XP Professional.

    I need steps how to do this, I have added hard drive to PC now I need to change boot order like CD ROM 1st boot device, HDD0 (Win XP already installed) 2nd boot device, HDD1 new hard disk 3rd boot device?

    Then when I boot from CD how to select second new hard disk for windows installation? Please guide me for steps and also what needed to be changed in boot.ini file in HDD0 where windows is already installed so that when PC starts I see two Win XP options.

    Waiting for reply.

    Regards,
    Wajeeh
