You will need to change the jumper settings on the hard drive physically, this is not a thing to do using softwares, etc. :D
Just open your box and remove your hard disk, you will find a sticker on it showing how to master/slave/cable select it.

set your 160Gb as your master then 250Gb as Slave. as per itech7 advice, change your configuration by your HDD jumper setting.
BtW, is your HDD IDE or sata?

@jemz,

Master/Slave terminology is in references to old IDE/PATA drives/cables. SATA only allows for one device per cable, so there is no need for anything like master/slave. So, you just plugin the SATA cable the device along with power, and you're done. If you have two SATA HDs, then you'll have two cables.

Oh and if you SATA drive has two power connection an old 4 pin and a L shaped sata DO NOT PLUG POWER INTO BOTH!!! You will destroy the drive.

FYI, my motherboard requires my OS/Bootable drive to be connected to SATA 1. If you have the drive connected and you do not see it within my computer you may need to initialize and format the drive first via disk management. If you need help with this part let me know.

@Marquee,
