Ok I took the drive out, it's an IDE and I have SATA as bootable, and my Bios is trying to boot from the IDE. I changed the BIOS settings. Specifically, I went into advanced changes the "Controller Mode" from IDE to RAID. Was this correct? B/C windows now boots fine.

But when I go to management setting and try to rescan disk, the IDE drive does not appear.

Also I forgot to note, when I first put in the drive and was able to access windows. There was a prompt about updating the drive, but it talked about instability. I tried to get it back but to no avail. The IDE drive doesn't seem to be appearing in the BIOS. Do i have to set it to master for it to appear? I'm new to this.
