  1. Hi all...I've just built a new pc
    mobo psp800s
    p4 3.0 gig
    I've got 2 sata drives one on which I've installed xp pro
    I'm trying to conect a ide drive with some file I need to copy to the sata drive but as soon as I conneect the ide won't boot up
    I've tried every thing I can think of with the same result
    anyone know what is happening
    any advice would be appreciated

    Have you been into the BIOS and set the SATA drive to first boot drive? If the IDE is earlier in the list of drives the system will try to boot from, it won't boot..
