i have 2 hard drives , one SATA and the other SATA 2, on the SATA 2 i installed Vista OS , when i connect the second HD, the computer doesnt load the OS n stays stuck at the start, and when i try to enter the BIOS setup to set one a primary, the computer get stuck too.
Since in SATA there is no master/slave system, what should i do to be able to use both HD's togather?
could the second one that i am adding be damaged? (though i tried it in a SATA to USB box n it works very fine as storage device but when i start it connected as SATA on board with the second one, the system get stuck)
any ideas?
thank in advance.

Your motherboard may not support SATA 2 - check the documentation on the drive to see how to set it for SATA 1.
