Hi Guys

So I have a problem whereby I want to get rid of one of my ageing HDD's boot my pc boots from it, however the operating system is on a separate HDD. Vista is installed on drive C: and my old OS XP is installed on drive D:. I only use vista now but when the pc boots I have an option to choose either XP or Vista to boot. If I remove the D: drive I get a "Disk boot failure, insert boot CD" message when powering on, it will only boot up with this drive in.

In Disk Management it actually says against my C: drive (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition), but it certainly must be booting from the D: drive which says (System, Active, Primary Partition). See attached screenshot.

Is there a way of transerring the boot sectors from drive D: to drive C: as I want to bin the older drive it's starting to fail?

Cheers
Mark
