I have an Abit IS-7 Mobo running a maxter 250 gig and a 250 gig seagate HDDs. The OS is on the maxter . the maxter hdd is set as 1 on the bootdisk priority but sometimes out of the blue the pc attemps to boot from the seagate hdd, thus giving me a boot disk failure error. Luckily I figured that I could go into the bios and reset the bootdisk priority. why does it do this? The maxter is an SATA on an sata channel if that even sounds right (the sata wire). the seagate is on IDE1. Should I change the settings master /slave / select? Nothing as slave . Im pretty good with figuring out many PC issues but this oneI dont know what it could be.

Hi ragtoy...

Jumper the IDE drive (Seagate) as a slave and connect it to the center connector of the ribbon. Connect it to the Primary IDE channel. See if that helps.
