I'm currently running WinXP Pro Sp2 and have 2 SATA hard drives installed and everything is working perfectly.

The thing is i have an old IDE drive with a load of files i want to transfer to one of the SATA drives but once i add the IDE drive the system won't boot up and i get the "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER" which i presume means it's trying to boot to from the IDE drive??

Anyway does anyone know how i should set the jumpers on the IDE drive and is there someway i can set up the drives in the BIOS settings so that it'll detect the SATA drive first??

All help is appreciated....

Well i've managed to get that up and running by setting it as the slave to my DVD burner on my seconday IDE but i still can't read it, it says it is "unallocated".

Anyone any ideas??
