Great news
Glad you got it working Matt I applaud your perseverance :)

Why was the problem drive causing the BIOS to ignore the HDD, despite it being first in line?

Wish I could answer that, but my guess is the DVD & HDD are connected to the same IDE channel in a Master/Slave configuration and the faulty DVD was probably taking out the whole channel

Does that make sense ? :)

Anyway all's well that ends well

When you put it like that, it makes perfect sense.

Thanks again.
