Did you tell your system BIOS settings that the SATA drive is the first boot device/volume?
I just purchased a new computer (Win XP Home)that has a SATA HD. The computer works fine.
I want to install my IDE HD (Win 98) from my old computer in order to transfer files. However, no matter how I configure or connect the IDE drive, the new computer boots from the IDE HD in Win 98, not from the Win XP SATA.
I have switched the jumpers to slave, connected it to the primary and secondary IDE headers. It still boots from the Win 98 IDE drive.
How can I connect this drive to my new system so I can transfer the files??
