I have a native SATA motherboard with a SATA 250GB hard drive installed. I am trying to add my old 80GB IDE drive to my system but have problems. First, I bought a new IDE Dual Drive Controller and hooked the IDE drive to it but my computer tries to boot from the IDE drive instead of the SATA drive.
I gave up on the IDE Controller then went and bought a IDE to SATA Converter. I installed the Converter on the IDE drive but now the system won't boot at all, it just sits there and does nothing.
I know very little about SATA, so I can't figure out what's wrong with what I'm doing.
Any help will be greatly appreciated...
