unhook the controller on your os hd, then act like you're going to install windows (but just format and not actually install)\\
\\
make sure your sata controller's are on !

set your boot to boot the cdrom first, then press any key when it asks you to

Default should be your sata ports enabled

I just set the cdrom as the first boot. I saved it, then closed out. Now the windows is doing the same thing. What now?

let it run like you're installing it. when it asks where to install it, format and create a partition on the new drive

Thats the only thing I can think of as of now


Maybe try unhooking your currrent primary drive and plugging the new drive in the first sata port ?
