A8N-E Boot from P-ATA if I also have SATA RAID installed

    I was running A8N-E with two "old" parallel ATA hard drives with
    Windows XP SP2 installed. Recently I bought new 2 SATA drives and
    wanted to configure them as additional RAID 0. Unfortunately system
    tries to boot from new RAID array not from old P-ATA and of course it
    fails and halts.

    Setup configuration utility does not offer to change boot device
    priority of hard drives. There is an option in RAID configuration
    utility (F10) to make array bootable but there is no option to make it
    unbootable. By default this option is set to unbootable but the next
    time I run this utility I see this option set to bootable.

    Is there a solution for my problem?
