I have a two part problem.

1) I did a clean install on a new, larger, hard drive. It went well, but now the computer doesn't automatically recognize the new "C" drive. I have to press the F8 button to get to the part where I tell it to boot from the right disk. How do I get it to boot from the right disk automatically?

2) After setting up the new disk, I realized there are still some programs I need to deactivate on the old one. I've tried swapping out the hard drives but the computer doesn't recognize the old one any more. Is there any way I can get into the drive or is everything I need lost?
