    You may have used a bad driver when installing to the sata hdd

    If you unplug your other HDD, do you still have problems? If you're boot order is correct and you used a good sata driver, you may just need to upgrade your bios. I've seen a number of mobos get all confused when a bootable sata hdd was added with an existing pata hdd. In most cases a bios update was all that was needed
