My boot drive has BIBM 1.39 installed, and I don't need more than 4 primary partitions on it. However, I want to set up a secondary MBR-formatted hard disk to have more than 4 primaries, and I want most of them to be bootable.
Is that possible? How would I do it, please?

Easy. Just make the second HD an EMBR disk.
Be careful when installing OS to the second HD. Otherwise you could get booting files installed to the BIBM HD.http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/kb/article.php?id=339http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/kb/article.php?id=169

Thanks again for your valuable help, Brian!
I was uncertain about how to go about it because I didn't want to risk losing the partitions that were already there. But I should have realized that the Terabyte developers would have anticipated this need and designed accordingly.
Great work, you people!
