I recently decided to move a hard drive I've had in an external enclosure to inside my case. After I did this I got a bootmgr is missing error on startup.

Things that may be useful to know:
I have 3 hard drives (this new one being the third), one 60gb for my operating system, one 160gb for other junk, and now this 1tb one I've just put in.
My 60gb operating system drive is connected using an IDE cable, the other two using SATA cables.
I've checked all plugs and connectors in the case.
I've checked the boot order in the BIOS, sometimes the 60gb drive doesn't even show up, sometimes it does. My boot order is CDROM, then HDD(60gb one obviously). So startup will go like this: Bootmgr is missing, go into BIOS, check boot order, HDD not showing up, restart, Bootmgr is missing, go into BIOS, HDD is there, exit and startup ok. except sometimes I have to restart it a few times before it'll show up.
If I have posted this in the wrong thread, then let me know which would be the best thread to post in and Ill move it there.
Update: Just crashed with a blue screen, it restarted itself but now I'm getting "a disk read error occurred" message. I restarted it and I got "Bootmgr is missing" again.
