If i were you I would take a step back and put the hard drive back in…see if it works…then ask yourself why? Why won't it work without the other hard drive….which hard drive has the operating system on it…maybe you could swap the cables around…could it be that windows seven is installed on the hard drive you took out? If it isn't I still suggest putting things back to when it was working and then start from there. let me know if any of this helps... I will work throughit with you..
I actually have 7 installed on 1 and xp on the other. I even tried putting a os disc in then turning it on and trying to get it to recognize the dd drive and boot that way. No good.
OK here's what happening. I put both drives in. First one set to master and second to slave.
Most PC manufacturers handle BIOS updates based on your specific line and model, so head over to your manufacturer's support page and check its listings for your PC, because if you download and install a BIOS intended for a different model, your PC probably won't work (although most BIOS updaters are smart enough to notice if you try to install them on the wrong hardware). If there is a BIOS update file available, grab it–along with any documentation it comes with, because often warnings and specific instructions are contained in the Read Me docs. Those of you who assembled your PC yourself will need to look for BIOS updates from your motherboard manufacturer's Website. If you don't remember your motherboard's model number, you can look it up without opening up the case by downloading and running CPU-Z and clicking on the Mainboard tab.
