    Hi all
    I have just installed a new mobo. (Intel D945PVS)
    I have never had this problem before with intel board or other brands.
    I have Vista installed on SATA 0, Storage on SATA 1, XP on sata 2.
    On my other boards I could use the boot popup menue to chose my operating
    But on this board it will only boot to SATA 0.
    If I switch XP to SATA 0 it will boot XP only.
    I do not have dual boot setup.
    Each op system was installed on that HD,the only one connected at that time.
    Has anyone used this board and had this problem ?
    I don't see anything in BIOS to change this.
    It don't matter which hard drive I set in bios to boot first it only boots
    whatever is on SATA 0.

  2. On hdd connected to SATA 0 install any bootmanager with "drive swapping"
    option and use it to boot other operating systems. I recommend BootIt
    Next Generation . "Drive swapping" is
    in fact what your BIOS do.

    Hi M.
    Thanks for the reply. Looks like no one else has had this problem with this
    I am awaiteing a reply from Intel now. I don't want to have to buy a boot
    loader , this bios SHOULD do this,I have done this on other motherboards
    including Intel. Don't know why this one won't.
    Thanks again for the sugestion though.
