Windows XP SP3 install issue

Hi Experts,

                 I have installed WIndows XP SP3 in Pentium 4 machine by using SATA CD drive. Winxp sp3 is installed in IDE hard disk. Because it doesn't contains SATA hard drive. So once the installation is completed.. I can use windows xp . If i remove the SATA CD drive. WIndows xp unable to boot and its getting restart. If i again reconnect SATA cd drive its working properly.. Please suggest me to resolve this issues. Thanks in Advance

Uninstall SP3, download the SP3 install file from Microsoft, copy it to the IDE hard drive, and re-install using only the hard drive.  I think that may resolve it.

sounds like boot order as jsdray said.

try disabling the SATA port from the bios and set the IDE as primary

Does it boot into Safe Mode without the CD drive attached?

Does it display any errors before it restarts?

check in the bios the setting for the disk drive -  set it to IDE, mode, or compatible
