I just bought a new computer to replace my old celeron 333. The new puter is a AMD athlon 64 3200+ on an asus motherboard. the hard drive that came installed on it is a WD 80 gig 7200 rpm SATA drive.
What I want to do is, take the hard drive out of the old machine and put it in the new one. The old drive is a Maxtor 20 gig 7200 rpm IDE drive. After I reset the jumpers to make it a slave, I plugged the IDE drive into the secondary IDE connector ( the DVD burner is plugged into the primary IDE connector) and rebooted the computer. Well guess what!!! The computer wants to boot off the old drive!
How can I set it up so the 80 gig SATA drive with XP on it boots up and the old drive is just a second drive that I can use to make backups, etc...?
