i had formated 1 of 2 hdd with xp to start me off , got a copy of win7 and put that onto drive 2 of 2 . tried to delete the files on drive 1(xp) and was stuck with one file .. so i thought i would be smart and delete the partition , well i did and got stuck installing xp again , now i cant get my system to boot up win7 on drive 2 , i tried switching the drives in bios and the sata conections themselfs ? im lost and i need help
