When I connect a second HDD, and reset the BIOS to boot from the SATA socket to which THAT HDD is connected which I want to boot from, booting may still happen from the other socket/HDD. How can the BIOS setting be enforced ?
It would help to list your system specs & device configuration. What's on the 2nd HDD? Assuming it's a version of Windows, was it installed on the drive while in the system you're attempting to boot it from? Did you try temporarily disconnecting the HDD-1 to see if you can boot from HDD-2?
You'd need to check the manual for the motherboard or system. But basically you'd need to verify the controllers are enabled and the drive is seen OK. Some systems have an IDE mode for sata drives but I'm not sure if that needs to be enabled if the drive is already set up.
