    Installed two separate hard drives, each with a licensed copy of Windows 10, one will be a work OS the other for Gaming.

    Installed Easy BCD

    1. Primary drive boots fine and works

    2. Second drive provides Error on load

    a. Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the Problem:

    1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.

    2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next."

    3. Click "Repair your computer"

    When I click "Next" there is no "Repair your computer" option. I only have Install. If I know Windows will install on the Gaming hard drive, I have no problem, but I can't afford to have the work OS reinstalled.

    Do I have any other options? I just want to select either disc at boot.

    Thanks

    What drive letter did you specify when adding the second W10 to the first W10's BCD ?
    You must give it the drive letter which the first OS sees as the second HDD's letter in Explorer.
