IDE and SATA do not mix unless setup properly.
I would use the SATA one as main hard drive and set the other up as an external one on USB
Try resetting the BIOS to boot from CD
on ter lower part of boot screen will tel you the key to press to access the BIOS setup
Usually one of these keys
F2 CTRL+ESC or DEL
when in BIOS check and set to boot from CD

My hard drive has system but when i try to boot from usb or cd room for new system it's freeze and doesn't start up with usb boot or cd room


You didn't provide any details on what OS you are running or trying to load, but here are some steps to verify.
1. Ensure that the procedures you used to create your bootable USB device or bootable CD are correct. These will not boot unless they have a boot loader installed properly on them.
2. While running your existing system, ensure that you can actually view the files on your USB device or CD (in case either device is not actually working).
3. Ensure that the BIOS settings set the boot priority to USB or CD ahead of the hard drive.

Start up


Do you have any other cds? might be the wrong cd. or the cd might not be startable / bootable.

try another disc and check that the computer is set to start from the cd drive.

CANNOT INSTALL XP HOME


Why do you revove the cd? DONT do that, just let the installation go on until it finish.
When xp restarts you will be asked if you want to start from the cd, if you do press any key, DONT press anything at all, let the system starts from the point of installation that it needs.

BTW, did you set the boot correct? boot ONE the cd/dvd, boot TWO the HDD

Good luck

Selecting Boot Device


If you want to boot from the IDE HD drive then you should get into BIOS and set it as the first boot device, followed by your SATA drive and CD drive. That should do the trick.

Hope this helps,
Sai.

No boot up, display, beep, or HD action


I am having the same issue. Clearing/reset the bios will get the board to boot up, but when turned off and started again the board will not boot. you will have to clear the bios again. The board seems to be rebooting itself continuously before it evens get to the POST.
