changing boot disc

Postby stevedonovan » Wed Sep 29, 2010 2:20 pm

Using DualBootPRO1.1 I have tried changing the boot disc. The change page works but when I go back to the main page it is still set at 'c'. How do I change it?
I am only working with a single machine running Vista. I am trying to replace it with Win7 but cannot get the system to boot from the DVD as it always boots from 'C' which has Vista on it. I want to change the boot drive to 'E' which has the DVD with Win7 on it but cannot change the drive letter with DualBoot as it does not do the change.
Help please!

Which operating systems are you dual booting?

Windows 7 (and Vista) use a 'virtual' drive lettering system and no matter on what drive letter you install them, they will always, when viewed from within Windows 7 or Vista, allocate the drive letter C to themselves.
