You might change the boot order in BIOS.

Another option is to plug the drive cables to other connectors (i.e. switch data cable of both drives) so the order in which they are detected changes.

Did you change the boot order in the BIOS so that the new HDD is included in the boot order?

 

Is there a operating system installed on this new HDD?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
