    Setup dual boot system to boot from secondary harddrive

    I've recently done some major upgrades to my system and am trying to improve my disaster recovery options. Here is my current drive/OS configuration:

    Code:
    DriveA\
           -RAID 0+2 via MB controller (ASUS); Win7x64 installed (640GB) (Ubuntu 12.10 x86 installed as a VM in Windows)
    DriveB/
    
    DriveC -3 partitions, NTFS (768GB), ext4 (244GB), swap (12GB); Ubuntu 12.04 x64 installed + NTFS storage/backup
    Currently using GRUB2 as bootloader.

    Currently, the system boots from the RAID configuration. What I want is the option to boot from the secondary drive in the event the RAID or the drives within it fail and still be able to get into Ubuntu. How can I have GRUB2 installed (and maintained) on both drives?

    I would like to see the output of this command (so I can understand your setup):

    Code:
    sudo blkid -c /dev/null -o list
    Intel Core i7-950 / Asus P6X58D-E / Nvidia GTX480 / siduction 64-bit on OCZ Revodrive SSD / KDE4.10.2/ Kubuntu 13.04
