Set the new hdd on ide 1 and the cdr on ide 2 both as master.
Go into bios, set the boot order to cd-rom 1 and hdd 2
Save and exit.
Now due a fresh install of windows, if your old hdd has a copy of windows on it from a different mobo then thats your problem or if windows was installed on the mobo you sent back it is messed up from all the problems.
After windows is running take out the cdr and install the old hdd on ide 2 and get your info. Iwould then get rid of that drive if it is that old and don't have jumpers.
instead of trying to make it work on the same ide channel as the new hdd and creating problems.
then reinstall the cdr back on ide 2 as master.

after installing, you can still hook up the old HDD as a slave and retrieve anything off it if you want, or just forget about it.
