I have a desktop mini server with removable hard drives.  I have a Win7 PATA drive I want to clone to a SATA drive.
The Sata drive is a XP operational drive.  In my boot chain, it boots first.  
I need to either mount the drive after the Win7 Pata drive loads or disable the XP drive so it will not boot.
Is this possible?
