Re: slave HDD in VISTA
The CD drive would have been set to cable select or Master by default. on cable select it goes by what ever is last on the chain (furthest from the motherboard) is master, but both drives need to be set for cable select.
I would check in your BIOS settings and make sure that it's set to boot off of your SATA hard drive, not your new slave one. Seems like every computer i've worked with wants to boot off of ATA hard drives (your old one) first when mixed with SATA (your new one).
