    You need to change the BIOS in your system to boot from the SATA drive, or alternatively, use the repair console of Vista to put the boot files on your C: drive - SATA.

    What is on the D: drive ?

    Was it always used for booting ?
    Did you set the  SATA drive as primary and make the partition active ?

    I hope this helps !

    In the end I had to remove the D: drive as vista was not finding a problem. Then run the vista repair console to put the boot files on the C: Drive.

    Now I have a normal booting computer THANKS.
