ok, you gotta make sure that the primary master is the hdd which has the os on it. Then just start the computer, and go into the bios. Check that the pc sees all the drives and stuff. If it doesnt, continue booting anyway, and go into disk management. See if you can see the drives in there.

oh rite, if you have xp, right click on my computer and select 'manage' then disk management is in there. If you dont have xp, go into control panel/administrative tools/computer management/disk managment
See if they r there.
