hi if you restore your system (win xp) partition in the content selection there's 2 entries: the partition itself and master boot record. if you just restore the partition itself you cannot boot from that partition right? at least that's what i just found out. so you have to select BOTH the partition and mbr. but once i select mbr it will ask me : "specify where mbr will" what exactly does that mean ? both my disk are listed - secondary slave and secondary master which should i choose and what happens on the disk that i choose? here's what i wanna do: i have 2 disks and on both discs there's a small (10gb) partition for win xp, i wanna be able to boot from both disks and i thought i just connect (change the plugs disk1 >< disk2) whichever disk i wanna boot from on the first sata slot on the mainboard.
