    Dual Booting
    Hi

    Just wondering if when putting two drives in a mac for dual booting do you have to set the drive jumpers and if so what too, Master and Slave, or Master and Master ?


    Thanks In Advance

    the drives should be set to autodetect by default but it would probably be wise to set a master and slave

    You want your existing drive with OS to be master and your new blank drive to be slave.
