dual(tripple,...) boot with physical switch
I searched high and low for a boot manager that has a physical switch feature. By this I mean something that detects the position of a switch and then boots the appropriate OS. My wireless keyboard for some reason doesn't work in dos and I still wan't to be able to choose and it would look quite slick. I know this exists because I saw a mod once where someone put a pc in half linux/ half windows cd box and depending on the position of the box it would boot linux/windows.
To make a long question short, which boot manager to use that has a physical switch option?

tnx for the effort but it needs to switch between partitions and not between hdd's. I know it's possible because it has been done. Also, i want to make my own switch because i don't have any drives left (damn those vapo's :ws: )

If he would have that link, then why would he ask for info? :)

i saw it once, i don't remember where and the poster of the casemod didn't say where he got it or what the name was

it would be cool to control the boot manager & the parititions on your HDD through a switch, but doesn't sound very plausible...

Especially the partitions part, you can't acces those through a switch I presume...

i guess there's some kind of boot manager that can read if you put something on the com port or something like that

It's possible (and easy) if you use different drives for each OS. Simply make a switch between the powerconnector of the drives, so only one of them is powered on at boot.
