Windows 7: How to set up a dual OS with switch between HDD's

24 May 2017   #11

Windows 7 home premium 64bit

Thanks for your input fellers :)
Just love some of the ideas...
The Lian Li DK-02X Desk case looks the goods but............too bloody dear for my budget
The Kingwin switch seems good and the Trayless mobile HDD rack as well. (I'd never heard of either until now)
Gonna toss it around with my reliable "techy" and go from there.
