- SATA and IDE drive problems

boot from the SATA drive and use the IDE drive as extra storage.
Problem is, no matter how I configure the IDE drive (slave/master) the
system wants to boot from it and not the SATA drive.
I have windows loaded on the SATA drive (using it right now, without
the IDE drive hooked up) and the IDE drive is just NTFS formatted
My BIOS has an option to select which drive is priority, but it won't
let me switch them. With the IDE drive hooked up the BIOS shows the
SATA drive as IDE 4 and the IDE drive as IDE 0. Of course, when it
tries to boot it says "NTLDR not found hit ctrl-alt-del to reboot".
How can I get it to boot from the SATA drive?
