  4. Re: 2 SATA partitions with Windows 7 on each. Can a boot loader be added in hindsight

    Thank you mzee and dugimodo! I'll try those and see what happens. Easybcd seems quite a useful prog as I'm already running Aomei and Esaeus partition managers.

    Hi all,

    I've searched the net but no specific answer to that question. If possible I'd like to dual-boot as each partition has a different end purpose. I know, I should have done the boot loader...

  9. Re: Win 7, 2x SSDs, dual boot without 3rd party bootloaders...possible?

    Thanks for the easybcd tip wratterus.
