    IDE and SATA in the same system

    Just installed Mint 10 on a stand alone IDE drive. I then added a SATA drive for back-ups (just happened to have it lying about). Problem is, when I boot, Mint wants to make the SATA the first drive, and I get an error that makes me hit S to ignore and continue. It boots fine after that, and the SATA is mounted and available. Question is how do I \what do I do to make the SATA seen AFTER the IDE, so I dont have to keep hitting the Ignore key. This is NOT a big deal, I can either keep hitting the f'ing key or simply replace the SATA with another IDE . Just curious and want to learn. Thanks.

    Maybe it is not Mint. Have you checked your BIOS (Boot priority) settings?

    Thanks, but that wasn't it. I may just change SATA for IDE and let it go at that.
