I am running into trouble...
Initially had 80 gigs hdd (SATA interface) with Windows XP. Then installed two extra hdd's formatted 250 gigs each (one SATA second IDE). On IDE hdd installed WindowsXP-64bit. At this time all three hdd's were connected and enabled in BIOS.
Later removed one 250 gigs hdd (SATA) to use in different comp. When reboot system couldn't boot WindowsXP-64bit. I decided to reinstall WindowsXP-64bit onthe same hdd (250 gigs IDE). Since then I used two hdds and had three options on Windows boot menu (two-WindowsXP-64bit and one WindowsXP).
Now I decided to add third hdd (new). When I enabled it in BIOS (SATA), I wasn't able to boot WinXP-64bit.

Please help me with advice. Appreciate all help.
