Thanks for the reply. I found that the Windows System Backup will happily reload the OS system onto another drive, and both drives are intact. I moved my Profile to my DATA drive and still need to relocate the documents folder to it's new home.
I once had a piece of _____ software erase the MBR on the system drive because it thought the security wasn't correct. After I calmed down and put the mbr back, my OCD kicked in and I pulled out my hardware debugger to see what happened. I found the code in the program was intentional.....
The old IDE system had 2 CD/DVD drives, 3 IDE HD, 2 removable drive trays, memory card reader, and a floppy.
Thanks to everyone for the excellent and valuable tutorials!

The easiest way to do away with boot issues between separate Operating Systems (OS) is to use the BIOS one time boot menu to select which OS to boot at system startup, each motherboard has an individual hot-key to tap during system start-up to access this menu.
