I have recently installed Felicia and Vista on separate hard drives but can't get GRUB to dual boot. Grub lists Felicia and Vista but will only boot into Felicia. The problem appears to be within Vista as Grub attempts the boot but an incompatibility error is returned . Has anyone tried dual booting these programmes from separate hard drives?
sudo fdisk -l

Grub can only be used on a hard disk with 2 operating systems on it.

This patently untrue! There is no limit to the number of operating systems grub can boot.
I haven't followed this thread but as a general rule of thumb, it is a bad idea to swap hard drives around in BIOS to boot them. Grub is quite capable of managing this in a saner way than the BIOS select.
