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.
