I added an another hard drive with win 7 64 installed on it. So I now have 1 hard drive with win 7 32 bit and one with 64 bit (I need booth).

before when I have done this a boot option was automatically created. This time however the only way I can accesses the new drive with Win 64 on it is by going into my bios and manually selecting the drive to boot from. However I did detach the original 32 bit harddrive when I was installing the 64 bit OS to make sure I didn't erase it (as the drives are the same size).

How can I get a boot menu set up so I can pick which drive I want to load.

My motherboardicon1.png is ASUS P8H61-M LE/USB3

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

EasyBCD is the easy way to ensure that both installations are reflected on the boot menu at startup...take a look.
