This is my problem. I made an image with true image of my c (boot) dive to another partition on my primary drive. I then recover the image to my 2nd IDE drive. So now my c drive (primary drive) is mirroed on my 2nd IDE drive. My goal is to be able to boot off of the 2nd IDE Maxtor drive. When I restart computer, hit F8, i get all my drives up to boot from. I choose my seconddary IDE maxtor drive from the list, but windows just goes and boots from the primary IDE drive. What can i do to make this work? When I look at the image i recovered to my 2nd IDE drive, it is an identical copy of the primary boot drive. I just watnt to be able to boot from my second drive in case my first drive fails. anybody??
