    How to boot off second HDD using EasyBCD

    I have a Win 7 "crap" partition on the second HDD in my system. I use it when I need to to run tests, like downloading some new utility. Up to now, I've been using the BIOS with boot priority override to boot into this drive.

    So today I used EasyBCD and added another boot entry. That would be simpler than always going into the BIOS. No problem adding that entry. But when I tried to boot into that partition, I got an error message and could not boot successfully. I had to restart and boot from my main Windows partition, on the first HDD (actually an SSD).

    What did I not do right? I checked the NEOSmart website, and could not find any useful info.

    The C: drive is the drive I'm booted into. The D: drive is the drive for the other boot drive. You have to change the D: drive to match your drive.
