and reformmated it, loaded all the updates, drivers etc and tested and run it to make sure it was all going good , then i pluged in my hard drive installed bootus and went to reboot, which went well both hard drives show up and can boot into my drive which is set as master and work's, well then i rebooted and tryed my son's drive which is set as slave, it looked good an got to the welcome screen and then a message saying
(AUTOCHK PROGRAM NOT FOUND - skipping autocheck) and then reboots after the drive makes some rather loud sounds

ah yes if i recall the partition needs to be 'unhidden' partition magic will definitely do this for you also you may find one of the free partition manager progs such as 'ranish' will do it

and from vague memory also theres a setting in bootus that automatically hides the 'other' partition......you can change that...
