The motherboard on my old machine died so I bought a new one, and it has an SATA drive. The OS on the new machine is Vista and I hate it. I'm trying to install my old IDE hard drive, but when I hook it up, the computer won't boot. I try going into the boot menu and setup menu, but the IDE is nowhere to be seen. It doesn't show up anywhere, but it keeps my pc from booting. Any ideas how I could fix this?
