Added Bootable SATA to Bootable IDE, how to Boot from IDE not SATA

I have computer A with IDE drive set as Primary Master, Windows Vista, MS Office 2007, up to date data. From computer B with Windows XP, old programs, I removed the SATA hard drive and installed the SATA in A. Computer A only boots from the SATA. Via F2 SETUP, SATA is not listed as a Boot choice. I selected disable Fast Boot. Via F12 I found the IDE and set it to boot from A's IDE. aok. Next startup, reverts back to boot from B's old XP on SATA. Only by removing SATA, can I get the computer to boot from IDE. How can I access BIOS within booted up Windows Vista and change to boot from IDE Windows Vista and not revert to XP on SATA?

  1. What happens if you try removing all SATA drives, leaving only the IDE HD? Does the BIOS now let you select it as the boot device?
