I have a 180 GB hard drive that has xp installed and is a sata drive. The drive doesn't boot properly and I'd like to retrieve the data from it. I hooked up another hard drive in my sata 1 on my motherboard with xp installed and hooked the bad one to the second sata port. Everytime I boot, it boots the bad hard drive which is not what I want. I want to boot into the good hard drive and see the second bad hard drive in my computer so I can pull some data from it. What am I doing wrong? Any help?

My bios shows both drives in the correct sata ports however under boot device only the bad hard drive shows up as an option.
