    yes they are both in the bios. When i press f9 to enter boot either will boot but it does not save the order and like I said when I boot from the new sata drive the old one dissapears in windows after startup.

    do you mean that it hasn't been assigned a drive letter, or that it is totally gone (hardware not detected)? check the device manager and disk management. disk management is under control panel > administrative tools > computer management > disk management. check both locations.
