Need to change boot order but no drivers installed so accessories don't work

Pavilion p6320f
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

My computer is trying to boot from the disk drive, and I'm trying to chang it so it boots from the hard drive. Unfortunately the keyboard and mouse don't work, and I think it's a driver issue. How do I fix this?

@gamer343 

According to the specs I could find, your model PC comes with both an optical drive and hard drive already included -- and both use SATA ports.

 

With these machines, the SATA port connecting the optical drive is considered "port zero" and the one connecting the HDD is considered "port one".

 

If you swap the cables, then the HDD will be seen as "port zero" and the optical drive as "port 1".

 

Understand, that IF you do this, you will LOSE the ability to boot from the optical drive because, from then on, your PC will ALWAYS try to boot from the HDD, even if there is a disk in the optical drive.

Hi

Only have the one you want to work connected.  The other, just temporarily pull the plug.
