Titel:

Why will my PC not boot from SATA Solid State Drive

Text:

I upgraded by adding a SSD via SATA port on the motherboard. It works fine but will only boot if I also have a (redundant) operating system (Windows XP) on the original IDE drive. I can then choose to boot straight from Windows 7 on the SSD. Without the IDE drive I get a boot error something like Primary Hard Drive Not Found.

The IDE drive has now developed a fault and I want to install a new hard drive on the other SATA port rather than replace with in IDE drive.

Can anyone offer advice? DM.
