we have some PC's with a removable hard drive. You just slide it in and out from the front. A group of students have their own hard disk and get the PC for an evening. Next evening it's for another group of students. Never seen it anywhere else.
That would be something that suits you?
I know, that's the electricians job.
I want to mount an external, swappable IDE hard drive, cannot be USB. I want a switch that will connect the IDE port on the motherboard to the internal drive and an external drive. I want to be able to switch drives, powered off of course during the switch, to run different OSs. No, I don't want a dual boot system, nor do I want a virtual PC either. I want two separate drives.
Right now I have XP Pro on a hard drive and Win7 on another. I have to open the case and physically swap the drives. I want to do it with a switch. Software switch would be nice, but hardware will work.
Any such animal?
