The other day I installed a second internal hard drive so that I can put ubuntu on it. The primary hd has windows 7. Using the Ubuntu windows installer everything installed without a problem. When I rebooted I got a lot of error messages during bootup and finally the boot manager menu. I selected Ubuntu but it fails to start -- tells me to insert a disk. Selected Windows and it booted without a problem.
I checked bios bootup settings and it appears to me to be ok. Isn't it possible to have a bootable second hard drive, or do all operating systems have to be on the same primary hd, just in different partitions?
