I added an extra drive (SSD) to my machine. Now I would like to boot from it.
I have an Acronis image which I wrote to it but now I'm kinda stuck. How should I configure it?
SATA is first drive on which Windows 7 (2 versions) and Windows 2008, the other disk (SSD) has the Windows 2008 which I like to boot from. I still need to be able to boot other OS-es.

Thanks for your help.

If I understand your meaning you had plug a new drive into your machine and put an image of Win 2008? if so hit ESC or F1 or Enter (according to your machine brand) and choose a temporary boot device from boot menu (where you can choose boot from HDD, DVD, USB, Network..) and select your new drive.

Best Regards.
