hi, i bought a Raptor 36GB just now and installed it successfully. but now i want to copy data from my old drive into it, so i plugged in the old PATA drive and started the computer. apparently, i did not uninstall windows properly from the old drive and it gives me a long list of missing files when it attempts to start win 98 from it.

so i'm asking, is there a way to select to boot from my SATA drive instead of the PATA one? thx.

Set SATA or SCSI (depending on your BIOS) to an earlier position than HDD0 or IDE (Depending on board again).
