I recently got a new computer, So I had to install My operating system again.
I prefer the SATA hard drive because it's faster.
All went well until I connected My storage IDE hard drive.
Then, The computer wouldn't boot.
It turned out that I had to jumper the IDE hard drive as slave.
And, Of course set the OS hard drive to boot first in Bios.
I didn't have to using Windows XP. But, Using later OS, That's what You must do.
