Dual booting

I have got two hdd in my systems. first one has Windows XP installed and is working fine. Other one Has Server 2003 Installed and also works fine.

Both HDD are independent of each other. I have insatlled the XP in one hdd and removed it from the system, the i have installed the other hard drive and installed Server 2003.
Now I have connected both the hard drive in my system.

AS my system dont have any option to select the boot hard drive priority. it allway boot from the  first hard drive, Sata 0 Port. So if i have need XP i haave to connect y hard drive to sata 0 port, and if i need server 2003 i have to put it in sata 0 port.

I have updated the bios also, but still it dont show me the option of changing the order of the hard drive in boot sequence. Nither does the F9 Key show me the 2 hard drives.

I want to know is their any SOftware (boot loader) which can solve my issue. ANything which load in first and asm me to select the OS, Windows XP or Server 2003
