By your post,I am not all to clear on what you are trying to do here as far as setup. If you want to use the old drive as storage, make sure the jumpers are set to slave, you have it on the correct IDE cable, Primary slave ribbon? The first ribbon is nearest to the edge of the MB , primary. The second is innermost next to it, secondary. Hard drive 1 IDE0 on top,primary, IDE1 slave, under on primary. Secondary, cd\dvd drives. Jumpers should be set to master on new drive, slave on old drive. Use auto detection from CMOS, do not set it to boot from IDE1, just IDE0. You can boot up to the new drive, assuming you even have an OS on your new drive, then access Windows disk management and delete the old drive's partition, reformat to NTFS (usually) and use it as storage. It should be drive D: and don't forget, once formatted, deleted, you will lose all info on the old drive.
I just installed a new hard drive and I am trying to use my old hard drive as a storage drive it still has data on it but there is a problem with the opperating system on the old drive a friend put it in his computer and it recognized it and the data is still there. when I put it in mine I use the primary slave ribbon and power jumper but when I try to boot it gets past the blue HP screen and then a little dash just flashes in the very top left corner
