Boot drive problem

I have a 120 gig ssd as a boot drive. Another hd also contains the os. win7 pro defaults to the 750gb hd instead of the ssd.
Once i disconnect the hd, win7 reconizes the ssd as the boot drive. Connect the hd and win7 recognizes it as the boot drive.
Any solution?
I also have an extra 120gb ssd. Is there any way to get win7 to recognize the 2 ssd's as 1 drive?

Pl change the boot sequence to boot from SSD. In MHO it may not be possible for two SSDs to appear as one. If there is any solution I'm also interested to know about it.

2 SSDs can be set up as a single drive in RAID 0. Two 120 GB drives would become a single 240 GB drive. All data on the drives will be lost during the set-up/installation so be sure to back up your data. Additionally, if one drive ever fails all data on both drives will be lost.

Thanks. I got so involved with disk management, I forgot all about setup.
