    HI,I inadvertently removed my sata drive,secondary drive,with an IDE primary drive,I went into the BIOS and enabled my floppy drive which took the sata out of sequence and then disabled floppy drive to get the sata back but It is not in the options.
    When I boot up I see the message that primary drive found but secondary sata device not found.
    The drive works ok when I am using it and shows up everywhere it should except in the boot sequence.How can I get in back so I can boot with it.Just had a new mobo and CPU installed along with an extra HDD which was the sata and only had it home for a couple of days before I screwed it up.That didn't take long.
    My bad :(
