    My spare HDD blacked out yesterday. It just dissapeared from My Computer after a couple of clicking sounds. I restarted the computer and noticed BIOS didn't detect it.

    I then restarted the computer again after giving the computer a couple of big smacks and the disk was detected again but only this time the OS from the spare disk loaded instead of the OS installed on the main disk!n :rolleyes:

    Guess it's because somehow the BIOS reset the boot disk from the main HDD (which is a SATA drive) to the spare disk which is an IDE.

    I've checked all the settings but nothing's changed, and I can't figure out how to get the computer to boot from the SATA disk again. I don't want to open the computer to do it.

    Any ideas?
