XP on 2 hard drives...

Hey guys,I could really use some help.

I had one hard drive with XP on it but it began to crash,
plus I decided I needed a bigger hard drive. So, I took
the computer to a repair shop and the guy said he could
fit a new hard drive with a new edition of XP but still
alllow me access to my old files. This worked for months...

However, today I found an even older hard drive and
thought how cool it would be to get access to all my old
files from years ago. So, I removed the computer cover,
unplugged one of the hard drives and plugged the
ancient one in in its place.

Unfortunately, not only did this experiment not work but I
can't seem to make my proper hard drive boot back into
XP again! Instead, the hard drive I oroginally replaced
boots instead, even when it's set as a slave, and I can't
find any option in the startup for my proper hard drive to
boot into XP instead. I'm sure everything physically is in
the same place as it was before I foolishly started

Does anyone have any idea how to sort this out?

Huge thanks in advance,

David (UK)

did you forget to go into the bios and set the one you want to boot as the primary boot drive?
