I had a windows corruption on my SATA Samsung SP2504C HD and bought a new SATA HD, Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 to use as my OS. I installed XP on the seagate and it runs. Now, I want to install the samsung and transfer files over to the seagate HD, but the computer won't start windows with both drives connected.
    Seagate HD is selected in BIOS as the boot priority, but it won't give me any options beyond that.
  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

This sounds awfully like the rpoblem I was about to post, so I had better keep a watch out for replies here.

I had finally got my PC running stably and wanted to add a second SATA drive as a slave. 

Plug it in and fan turns once then nothing.  Unplug it and all is well.  I have tried several available power leads.  Place I bought the HD from says it's because my BIOS needs changing but I can't find anywhere in my BIOS that refers to the SATA settings.

Please help.
