my system. When I plug it in (sata drive), my computer won't
start because it is seeing the new drive as the OS drive. It does
have an OS on it but it is the wrong drive. I don't want to boot
from that drive.
How do I control this???
Re: I need to plug in another serial drive to my system
Enter the BIOS. (On some systems, you press the Delete key at
startup. Check the screen during POST, as it may tell you on
the screen, what key to press.)
On some of my computers here, as soon as you change the drive
configuration, it screws up the boot order. What I have to do,
is visit the section of the BIOS that controls the boot order.
Go into the list of hard drives, and select my "normal" boot
drive, as the one to boot from. If the hard drive config
changes again (unplugged the new drive), I have to go into
the BIOS and do it again. Don't forget to select Save and Exit
after entering the changes.
There are some other options, but try that first.
