Try disconnect your IDE harddisk and try again. After disconnecting the IDE harddisk remember to check in the BIOS that it's set up to boot on the SATA disk.

You don't need to load the raid drivers. You won't be able to run a raid in an IDE and SATA drive. Besides the drives need to be of the same size otherwise it only uses 120 gb of your new drive and then your out 200 GB.

Exactly right... Do as mpilchfamily says, gangsta.
