I am new here so please bear with me. I have recently purchased a complete HP workstation with a SATA 500Gig HD containing windows Vista. My intentions was to put my original SATA 160gig HD from my old computer into this and run this HD as the main with windows XP and all my programs which I dont want to lose, and have the 500gig as a slave for storing large videos (I am quite happy to remove all programs from this drive if required).
The problem is I have cabled the drives correctly but the bios does not recognise my 160gig drive and throws me into a loop.
Any help would be appreciated for this complete novice in the back of the box, thanks.
