    Would anyone here know whether it is possible to configure an HP
    Pavillion dv9000 to boot from a second disk (probably installed in
    place of the optical drive) rather than the first internal disk? Any
    accessories to accomplish that ??

    I've got a 9013 - there's a second hard drive bay and I've researched this a
    bit - using it requires a caddy kit to mount the HD - and apparently it can
    only be used as auxillary storage ie not bootable - but, since I don't claim
    to be expert, I'll defer to anyone who is...

    The machines boot order can be changed in the BIOS, whether you can
    install a hard drive in the
    CD/DVD drive slot is questionable.
