How do I set my dvd drive as primary master and HD as primary slave? I know I'd have to open my PC up but I don't know what to do inside it. Anyone know?

daxleet,
What MoBo are you running? SATA isn't like IDE (no slave/master/cable select) and you should be able to set your DVD as 1st boot device and your HDD as second in your BIOS.

I have a Dell OCT103 A02 motherboard. The chipset and southbridge are in my sig. I read a thread where I have to swap something about primary and slave because I have the 'IOATA Controller blocking device bus' or whatever.
