Does anyone know if it is possible to buy a switch (like the old I/O monitor switch boxes) so that I can select a specific drive from which to boot. I'd like to do it via software, but reading around it seems to be a nightmare to implement with SATA HD setups. By mutually exchanging the cables on the motherboard I achieve exactly the effect that I want, but they're gonna get damaged eventually. ??? BTW I tried Google but the terms are too vague.
