You have to set the boot order in BIOS. Also you can only have one active partition or drive, if you have an OS on both drives you have to use a boot manager to choose the boot. The computer is going to boot to the active partition, if that is the EIDE drive then a boot manager is needed.

If you don't have stuff on your EIDE drive yet, delete the active partition on it and re-make it inactive. (unless you are having an OS on it to dual boot) .
