It sounds like the boot order simply got munged in the BIOS. Reconnect the IDE drive.

Turn the PC's power on and access the BIOS (Dell, press [F2] / most clones press [DEL] etc...)

Find the area in your BIOS settings where you can choose boot order, and make sure the SATA drive is listed before the IDE drive. On some PCs, you'll have to go into the hard drive group, and move the SATA drive to the top of the hard drive group.

..but hopefully, you get the idea.
