    When I install multiple OS I usually connect only the one drive that I'm going to install the OS, after installing I connect them back again. Usually never had any problem following this simple rule.

    Well i did what u said and it worked

    But I thought it will ask me everytime in which HDD i want to boot in or which os to load but it is not. Now each time I want to switch between my os I had to manually select the HDD that i want to boot in from the bios.

    You can use the quick boot menu, actually it never bothered me because I keep my pc turned on for days.
    Yes dual booting is possible but and there are lot of other ways too, but usually faced issues so try to avoid this.
