Kinda. This is the scenario, I had a 40GB hard drive in one computer and a 8.4 in another, I wanted to switch them, seeing how the 8.4GB HDD was rather small and it was on the main/superior comp. I popped each HD out, and switched them only to find how that someone had formated each one different, one was in NTFS and the Other (8.4GB) was fat32. So I hooked the the 40GB as slave to format it (keeping it NTFS). After I had done that I popped in my xp cd and *thought* that I did a convert to NTFS on the 8.4GB. Well I didn't, I installed XP to the 40GB instead now I'm dual booted and I can't remove the 8.4GB HD without getting a "NTLDR" error on startup. right now its set up like this:

Master = C:\ 8.4GB fat32
Slave = F:\ 40GB NTFS

this is how i want it:

Master = C:\ 40GB NTFS

How would I go about remeding this?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Oh yeah, I would rather not have to reformat the 8.4GB if i do not have to.

hi casmodian,
I did notice that you have a post about the same issue in the xp forum. If you need to update us on the status of that problem, please try to post under the same thread. Mods around here kinda freak out if theres duplicate threads posted.

thanks.
