    I recently installed a new hard drive in my Gateway GM5623E, and my p
    always wants to boot to the new blank hard drive. I tried to change th
    boot order in the bios but the bios won't change the order. It alway
    goes back the new hard drive 1st. How can I change this so the old har
    drive boots first? I've tried swapping the cables on the drives, but i
    still boots to the new drive. I can access the boot menu without goin
    to the bios and boot from the old drive that way, but it's a pain to d
    that every time. Am I missing something simple? I just want boot to th
    old drive 1st.... Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Solved my own problem... googled it.... lol. Once I selected the har
    drive I wanted to boot from, I used the + and - keys to change the orde
    up or down the list then save & exit. Apparently this works any bios n
    matter which os (XP, Vista, etc.
