hmmm, by secondary, do you mean a burner?
is it the primary master/slave or the secondary master/slave?

off the point of a solution, why do you want to do this.

Rob, the first bootable cd rom drive is always:

1. The first found on the first IDE bus, OR

2. The first found on the secondary IDE bus.

eg: If you have a hard drive and cd drive on IDE #1 and a cd rom drive on IDE #2, then the one on IDE #1 will be bootable.

If you have two cd rom drives on IDE #2, then the master will be the bootable.

Hi Robjbw....

I think this can only be done if your BIOS setup let you select something like a secondary IDE, or the exact port.

Check your PC BIOS Setup and look for something like "Bootable CDROM".

Bye.
