Hi All,
I've just had a very nasty experience with Kubuntu (dual booted with XP) when it asked me if I wanted to upgrade to 11.04. I gave permission and off it went. Sadly it screwed up the dual boot routine and left me with a PC that would only boot as far as an 'Out Of Frequency' message! Eventually I got back in using my Slipstreamed XP disk up to the point where it let me delete the Linux partition.

I now have a spare hard drive which has Kubuntu already installed ( from a deceased PC) and would like to know if I can set my PC up to boot selectively from one of two hard drives. For example, is it possible to produce a menu, like the ordinary dual boot menu, but allowing choice of boot drive?

Anybody got any ideas, please?
