Second hard drive
When I loaded Vista I changed the primary hd (raid) at the same time. I have
a second hd (ide) and unhooked it so windows would install the new drive as
C: Everything is up and running and now when I plug in the second hd Vista
won't boot. Anyone have any ideas?

Re: Second hard drive
Plug in the second drive, go into BIOS setup and make sure the correct hard
drive is listed as the boot drive.
