2x HDD with 2x active partition in same desktop
I have to install 2x HDD SATA in same desktop, they are clones.
each of them has 2 partition, 1 active windows 7 (boot) and one logical for data
its a temporary situation, the goal is to drop the active partition on the second HDD
how will react the system with this conflict situation, which active partition will boot ?
thanks for help

Hard to tell, but we get lots of posts here with people having boot problems that end up being the 2 active partition situation. I would avoid it.
Partition - Mark as Inactive
Once you have removed the active flag you can install both HDDs in the PC and delete the OS partition.
Even easier, use a Partition Wizard bootable CD and just delete the partition using that.
Free Partition Magic alternative, partition manager freeware, partition magic server, partition magic Windows 7 and free Partition Manager software for Windows 7/8/VISTA/XP/2000 and Windows Server 2003/2008/2000.
