Re: Help with Booting Hard Drive
When installing 7 on the 80 you forgot to unplug the 200gb sata already set as the default boot device for the XP/7 dual boot seen there. The previous installations were added into the second 7 install's own boot loader as options. oops!
The boot files and mbr entries went onto the 200gb instead of the smaller drive being sata since ide default over sata every time. In order to see the 80gb sata bootable you will now have to first unplug the larger ide drive and rebuild the BCD for 7 along with seeing mbr entries placed there.
The quick solution? Unplug the 200gb ide and install 7 onto the 80gb sata fresh. Hopefully you haven't added everything else on quite yet. Then replug the 200gb ide back in where you can use the F1, F8, F12, or other assigned F key to bring up the boot device menu when you want to boot from the 200gb while having the 80gb sata set in the bios boot order as the default.
