I bought a WD 320GB internal harddrive, installed it, formatted it (NTFS) and divided it into two partitions (one for work/the other for games) and then installed Win XP Pro on both partitions. I kept my original harddrive as a back up for my work (this was still connected while I did the above).
The problem is is that when Windows boots up, it only shows the two OS on the new WD drive. I can see the original harddrive once I boot into either new OS and can access it for the files. It also shows up in the Bios (it did not at first but I managed to get it recognized after a few manipulations). It also shows up as a healthy drive in the Disk Management. But no matter what I do, I can not get it to show up as an option for booting to that OS.
Anyone have any idea how I can get the original drive to show up as an OS option after booting so that I have all three OS shown?
