    So i posted in the Windows on Mac forum, but i want to know something before i look like a big idiot.. is there something i should know about loading Windows 7 on a 2nd Drive in a MBP? I have seen people talk about this in the Optibay treads. Loading windows on the second drive.. i know it can be done.. Hell Boot Camp Assistant tells you it can. But i am having a HELL of a time doing it..

    You can read what i have done in this thread..

    But I have since does other things.. I have researched the Windows error number and saw that the "fix" is to unplug all other drives.. OK. i did that. I opened up my MBP and unplugged the original drive.. I then installed Windows and it worked! But as soon as i plug the drive back in and try to boot to it, it fails! OK. So my concern/question is..

    Can you install Windows 7 on a 2nd Drive on a MBP? and if you can.. am i getting these errors because of the new machine? God i hate windows..:mad:
