Stuipid question here. I'm about to order a Mac Tower with 2 HDs.

Can I use bootcamp to install Vista on second HD. I'd like to keep the OSs totally separate using 2 HDs. I've read it's doable but I don't want to have to unplug the HD during installation.

Thanks!

Windows Vista should technically pickup the other drive when it scans the bus for available media.

So i dont have to partition my drive when the option comes up?
As long as the drive is blank you will see it displayed in the Vista setup all you have to do is select it click next and Vista will automatically format and partition the drive to prepare it for the Windows installation.


personally I think after a little time with OSX, you'll want out of windows.
Hehe I sorta get that feeling as well. I bought Ultimate because I was very curios about trying Vista and I must say I really do like the Aero user interface, and the media center kicks massive a** but OS X just feels more refined and more robust. Like a real mans operating system.
