I have 2 issues

I have installed two 1 tb drives on one computer now the computer is booting from the original drive
how do i get it to boot from the 2nd installed drive? both hard drives have the same exact files, programs, updates. but I have games on the one drive and not the other
Drive C doesnt not have games but drive F doees...The computer is on a home network with two other computers--- they are all hard wired to a router. linksys BEFSX41
The pc that has 2 hard drives is in my kids room. the router is in my room the the thrid the other kids room.
If I Right click on the drive "c" and use the sharing and security wizard "network setup wizard" will I be able to use the one drive that this computer is not booting from for storage??? please help I did this all on my own and I m just learning. I took some 12 hrs and put all the files on each drive one at a time hard in the pc at a time. So after i loaded all programs and files that i need i set up two and it worked. but like I was saying one drive is missing games and the other has games but the pc is not booting from that drive. can someone please help me

Thanks William

Have you tried setting which drive will you boot in the hard drive boot options in the bios?

Maybe you should check your motherboard's manual to see how it is done. What is your motherboard?
