I have a Dual core PC with the following....
Mini Tower
ASUS P5G31T-M LX
3 sata hdds various sizes
DVD Re-writer
4GB DDR3 Ram
17" IBM LCD Monitor
Using Onboard Grapics/Sound etc...

The HDDS are set
1st WIN7 PRO
2nd XP PRO
3rd Zorin 6

All HDD's are always connected and to boot to the O/S I want as follows...
As the system boots I hit the F8 key which brings up the "Please select the boot device panel.\with the following options..
First Boot device the DVD drive on SATA port 3
Second boot device the WIN7 HDDD on SATA port 1
Third boot device the XP HDD on SATA port 2
Fourth the Zorin HDD
That leaves me a spare port 4

What ever HDD choose it boots that O/S, works like a charm. No multi boot required.

Im very new to Zorin 6 and the above is my workbench system that I use to work with other O/S's

I hope this helps others

Hi Sentar and welcome to the forum,

isn't this the same as utilizing the "GRUB" menu; or is this something you setup yourself?.
