:? I've got windows 7 64 bit and I just bought an OCZ SSD which I just want to use for gaming. I've already loaded it with windows and steam and it works fine. My question is, is there anyway to boot other than going into bios and changing the startup hard drive order every time I start or restart the computer.

Are you dual booting on a mac? You could try bootcamp.

That article has some stuff on dual/triple booting, I'm just not sure what you're trying to do.

??

I'm a little puzzled as to what you did so you didn't end up with the two as choices when you boot anyways... Did you have both drives hooked up when you installed the 2nd time?

At this point, I don't see why you couldn't just set your HD to be first in the boot order and then fix things with something like easybcd or bcdedit.
