I have imaged one sata hard drive to another; both windows 7. How can I choose which drive to use at startup with password protection?

please link you motherboard model.

you can add a generic bios password so you cannot boot the computer at all without entering a password. but its before you select which HDD to use.

there is no way i know of to have no password when you boot to one drive and have a password when you try to boot to the other.

not unless u use windows passwords.

I'll try a bios password for each drive, thanks.
