    Multi OS Multi HDD

    I wonder about the possibility of installing an OS from HDD while having the opportunity to have a multiboot operational.
    Example: 4 HDD: 1) Win XP 2) Vista 3) A Linux 4) Windows Server 2003

    The fact is that we must choose a HDD as primary boot.
    How does one do in this case not to have to change the HDD boot every time?

    Multi identifies the boot disk and partition containing the OS target. Once in place on the first disk identified by the bios, it will launch the OS of your choice without having to manipulation the HDD.

    Use removable drive enclosure and trays for all your hard drives, then you can "plug and play" your operating system before you boot up the machine?

    Another solution is more tedious to install the OS hard disk by disconnecting the others and then to select the disk that the BIOS boot ... but it's so long and boring ... I mention this only because it works, it is obviously more fun to install a bootloader on a disk

    Grub on the SD boot.
    Do not use against the utility of the kind of partition magic, it does that trouble.
