I recently upgraded my mac to 10.8.3 from 10.6.8, since i have 2 harddrives (removed my optimal disc drive) i went and install 10.8.3 into the other harddrive and ive got 2 versions in my computer now. Does anyone know how to fix that? Thanks

G'day and welcome to the forums.
'In my computer'. Are these actually internal drives? If so why do you want identical operating systems on them. May have been easier to use cloning software such as CasrbonCopyCloner or SuperDuper. If you intended to use the drive in the optical drive for applications etc it should not need an operating system.
If you want a backup hard drive in case of crashes, popping it into an external caddy and running cloning software may have been better. Both mentioned make a bootable copy.Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
