Lightbulb Dual Booting SATA & UATA

I have two windows systems on a new SATA drive and a UATA. is it possible for me to boot from the SATA drive and have the UATA drive as the slave without deleting the UATA's windows? The UATA is pluged into the slave port and the SATA is plugged in my mobo. i plan on sometimes switching between the two sometimes. sorry if im making no sense at all.
thanks in advance

Try looking in the bios for the boot order of the hard disks. Also, set the UATA (commonly known as IDE hard disk for future) to master since it will be on a different channel to the SATA drive.
