Hi all, I bought a new seagate 500gb hdd and installed windows 7 on it, my problem is that the new hdd cannot communicate with my old sata 160gb hdd with windows xp professional so i can enable dual boot or at least copy data from my old drive. My motherboard is Gb 945 ps3 and i have to play with bios settings every start-up to enable either drives

How to setup a dual boot system

This is just a stab in the dark, being Im no expert but Is the old one sata1 and the new one sata2? I had a similar problem was recomended to replace the sata 1 with a 2.

I would research that though. But when I did replace it, it worked fine.
