Question 2 hdds w/ Vista and XP

Sry for all the dual boot questions, but I need to know if I install Vista on my second HDD, will I still have the option for the dual boot startup screen to choose which OS, or will I have to go into the BIOS to choose which HDD to boot from? Or would it be better to partition one HDD to have the option to choose between XP and Vista from startup? Thanx

No i use 2 HDD for my dual boot setup. You dont HAVE to use your BIOS but some people do. I personally use the Vista BCD boot loader to choose which OS i want to boot to. Some people dont like that option and prefer to use the BIOS. It is all personal preference and if your BIOS allows for that option as well.
I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!
