Vista doesn't start after unplug-replug my SATA drive

it doesn't match my issue.
I used to have dual boot with XP and Vista on a seperate hardrive one with
XP another with Vista. Used tobe fine, have a boot menu for getting into
both. However 2 days ago i decided to reload my XP. To reduce terrible
things that might happen I unplug my vista drive(SATA). Purely reinstall XP
on another IDE drive after reboot. THings went okay and i got many things
recovered. Then I plug back my vista drive into my computer to start.
Boot menu is gone. It starts XP straight without asking. Alright I read
(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/919529) trying to get into vista but
wouldn't work. I get back into bios, select the SATA drive with vista
loaded for booting up first. I also have tried to remove my IDE drive the
one with XP loaded and only with the SATA drive the one with vista plugged
into my computer but still getting the same error from my motherboard saying
it couldn't find a bootable disc.
I am confused.
