I want to install a ssd drive 250 gig and a sata drive 1TB and multiboot between them. How would I setup the bios boot configuration and Windows 8 to do multiboot?

I think you can configure BIOS to do this, but you CANNOT use the same copy of Windows 8. You need to purchase another Windows 8 license.

I have two license. I looked in Bios and I have legacy mode selected. The 250gig has Windows 8.1 on it already,.

So then you need a boot manager for the SSD drive so that when you start you can select which disk. Your BIOS may have a selection option.

I suggest you start with the possible options in Windows 8. Here is a Windows 8 Forum Tutorial on setting up boot management. I would do this before trying a third party boot manager. You need to be Administrator before working through the tutorial but I assume you are.

I am pretty sure that you don't have to do anything but install it one to disk after the other - the boot entries will get created automatically.

Didn't those boot entries get created, didn't they work...why did you have to use the BIOS (if you even had)? Feedback is always welcome.
