Yes, you just have to install each O/S on the drive you want it to be on, or create two partitons on one drive. Install the older operating system first, then install the newer one and it will create a boot menu.

If at least one operating system is Windows 2000 or XP then this will owrk. If both operating systems are 95/98/ME then you'll need to get a boot manager such as XOSL. You can also use a hardware device such as the Romtech Trios to switch between drives.

Thanks for the replys the Romteck switch would do the job but my bays are full . My bios does have the option to select hd,s but i would rather boot off a menu if possible.....Both my Hard drives have operating systems and they both work independently with my motherboard and bios...........

The newest version of the Romtec Switch does not use a 5.25" bay. It is an external "wired remote" that connects to a PCI card.
