    I am making an exact copy of my C drive with Win XP home to another hard
    drive on my machine, using retrospect by Dantz.. My C drive with XP is
    configured as master and the drive I'm copying to is the slave on the
    same cable. If I leave both drives connected, will my machine try to
    boot from both drives or cause any other problems for me since both
    contain my operating system? TIA for any help offered.

  2. What do you have set for boot media order (which to try a boot from
    first, then second, then third...) in BIOS?

  4. Well, then -- that's the order in which it will seek bootable devices.
