My hard drive recently gave up and stopped working. So while waiting for a new one to arrive I done a fresh install of Windows 7 onto an IDE drive until my new drive arrived.
When it arrived (1TB SATAII) I done another fresh install of Windows 7 on to my new drive with the IDE plugged in still. I now want to remove the IDE and put it in a cheap system for sister who is going to Uni, but when I take the IDE drive out, the system won't boot even though all my Windows files are on my SATA drive???
The Bios recognises it, but just won't boot. If I plug the IDE back in, it boots fine.
Apologies if this is in the wrong forum and thanks for reading.
