    I installed a second HD in my Macbook Pro via Optibay.

    1st drive is SSD and second "normal" HD for data.

    When I boot I get a strange loop with the apple logo appearing and disappearing. It looks like my Mac does not know which of the two drives to choose for booting. Only when I press the options button before booting do I get the Bootcamp selector for Mac or Win which are both on the SSD.

    As I use the second drive only for data, I want to make the SSD drive the "primary boot drive" without me having to press the option button on startup every time.

    Any advise on how I can make the SSD the sole boot drive? thanks Axel
