Changing system drive in Windows 7

Changing system drive in Windows 7

Postby VietBitter » Sat May 16, 2009 5:27 pm

Here's the deal, I have two physical drives:

1. Disk 1 C:\, D:\ which is partitioned from that drive.
2. Disk 2 I:\

I installed Windows XP on D:\Windows\ then later installed Windows 7 on Disk 2 I:\. Currently the system drive is C:\ and Boot drive is I:\

How do I change the the system drive to I:\ ??

The reason I want to change it is because Disk 1 is older and slower, I want to completely move everything to the Disk 2 to make things smoother. I don't mind losing Windows XP in the process, but I don't want to screw up the boot up of Windows 7.

Here's my vista boot pro entries.
