Installation issue with two drives

Status

I have a pc with two drives on it. I installed windows 10 to one drive, unplugged it, installed windows 10 to the second drive. Re-attached the first drive. Booted the pc and installed easybcd, the newest version. Created two entries one for each drive. If i am in drive 1 and reboot I get the metro loader and choice of where to boot to. If I am in drive 2 and reboot it will reboot to drive to, No metro loader.

I installed Ireboot to both pc and it reads both drives fine, I can reboot to either drive from i reboot. But the first issue still exists.

How do I fix this?

Don't quite understand your problem.
One W10 gives you a boot menu and lets you switch, the other one just reboots to itself ?
Have you read
Windows 8 (or 10) boot problems ? Please read this before posting
If none of the above applies, can you post the details of your BCD entries (EasyBCD > View Settings) in "detailed" mode.

It seems that if i reboot or power down from Disc 1 it will reboot to the dual boot screen [metro loader or windows loader] OK. But I I go to disk two --- This is where the issues are. If I reboot i get to the dual boot but If I power down, on reboot it will go to the OS on disc two without presenting me any boot options.

This is from EASY BCD on disc 1:

I don't understand why you are booting from disk 2.
The point of dual-booting from one BCD is to avoid having to do physical device switching.

Terry60, not only is your reply terribly useless it is also inaccurate. There are other reasons to utilize dual boot, Sorry you can't think of even one,

Explain why you're trying to do it and I'll attempt to help you do it.
Get snarky and you can b*gg*r off somewhere else.

You've completely misunderstood Terry's motive in asking the question. He says, accurately, using EasyBCD gives you multi-booting without any need to physically switch drives. All he was wondering was why you were going to all that trouble. Perhaps explain it more...?

I suggest you take a look at the user profiles and come to terms with the fact that the number of users on this (volunteer) forum who take the bother to try helping those who just seek help are outnumbered by about 100,000:1
Trust you have good luck finding someone more to your taste.
I'll leave you unbanned because I'm in a good mood, but you have the honour of being the first user ever to go on my ignore list.
Shan't see you again.

I am not switching drives. The system has two drives, one OS on each. And it is not that I do not appreciate having someone offer help, it is just that his response is NOT helpful. And it is very tiring to ask for help and get replies that are of topic, useless or just not on topic.....He has no need to question my motives, this is the issue and I am asking for help. It would have been better if he either answered the question or not replied at all.

And by the way, I have solved the problem. No thanks to this forum.
