Now, the frst hard drive caught many viruses and he was thinking of doing DBAN, and install windows XP all over again on the first hard drive. But he's curious about what will happen to the boot loader. Will the boot loader update somehow after he does a clean wipe of the first hard drive? Will it make a mistake such as list three different OS on the boot loader? Sorry if this sounded like a dumb question, it's just he wants to make sure if he can do a clean wipe on one of the hard drives without affecting the boot loader in some way. What he would like is if the boot loader will still load the exisitng 2nd hard drive (the good one) with the new installation of the first hard drive. So, is it safe?
