OK...Last week I bought a new computer...I had a HD in my old one that's only 4 months old..so I put it in my new computer, formatted it, named it, (I'm only using it for photo/vid storage) now when I reboot windows7 it tries to boot from that disk...so I have to go in BIOS and switch things..(yes I switch and SAVE) but it still does this every-time..What have I done wrong? Is this a Windows7 Disk Management problem? BOIS problem? or me? I have my normal disc set as..Disc0..Boot,page,crash, primary...New one as Disc1, primary..I left it as one partition. Help!

If you formatted the drive...and didn't install an O/S, there is no way that it can be booted from.

Your boot files may not necessarily be as they should be...it's possible for them to reflect an O/S that no longer exists.
