winxp fails on sata after ide connected

February 2, 2011 at 18:08:26
Specs: Windows XP
my ide hard drive failed and i installed a new sata drive. i disconnected the ide drive and installed winxp on the sata drive... all went well. After totally setting up the sata drive I connected the ide hard drive as a primary master like it was before (i have two ide rom drives on the secondary ide - they work fine) and in bios set sata to boot drive, however, when i boot the pc it goes as far as the winxp splash screen and then reboots over and over again. i disconnect the ide totally from the pc and the system still boots to the winxp splash screen and reboots??? what am i doing wrong??
