Hi there

Is this possible to do with these removable mobile HD racks

http://www.vantecusa.com/front/product/view_detail/157


I want to keep my home pc and my work separate, I also don't want to dual boot a HD, I want to have 2 hard drives, each with its own operating systems on them.

So the situation is, the pc will not have a internal HD, just a empty mobile rack, I insert the drive in the slot and power on.

To change to the other, I switch the pc off and insert the other drive and so on.

I realise I can't use this as hot swap drives.

Can this be done?

You are using the same computer, right?
If so, then it is possible, yet more expensive to do what you are thinking.
If you have space for 2 hard drives in the computer, then you can have two drives and select which one you want to boot from in the bios. I do it all the time with my desktop.
