    I have a Lenovo ThinkCentre tower with one hard drive and I have bought an extre SATA drive.
    There is an extra set of connectors which plug in ok.
    The thing is I have an OS on the original and was able to install a Fedora os on the other with the original disconnected.
    Wondering if there could be a jumper to let number 2 drive be recognized (without the drive A unplugged)
    As far as I can tell the motherboard is: L-IQ35 Rev 1.0 Core Duo etc.
    Thanks in advance

    You can change which hard drive boots in the Bios Setup or use the correct key to open the Boot Device Menu and select the drive there.

    Usually the keys to enter the Bios Setup and the Boot Device Menu are shown on the screen just after switching on.
