|I had originally had windows 7 installed on an old 160g hdd, that was connected to the mobo with a ribbon cable. I recently bought a 1.5tb sata hdd, which I'm wanting to replace my 160g with. |
For some reason, it just won't boot from the sata without having the other 160g plugged in. Giving me the 'Disk Boot Failure, insert system disk and press enter' message.
I've got windows 7 home premium 64bit installed on the 1.5tb, and nothing installed on the 160 right now. 4gigs of RAM, intel core 2 duo processor 2.6ish mhz.
*I'm not sure if this information is applicable to the problem, but I also have a cd/dvd driver plugged in through another SATA port on my mobo. HDD is plugged into the first one on the left, CD/DVD plugged in right next to it on the right.
