AndyMosh Posted June 13, 2011 Share Posted June 13, 2011 So I had to reinstall Windows 7 due to human error on cloning a hard drive (it was 1am) and I installed Windows 7 on my new hard drive (Spinpoint F3 1TB) but the installer has set my drives up like this: I have done what this guy said here: http://www.hanselman.com/blog/SwitchingMyWindows7BootDiskFromDToCWithBCDBootRatherThanBCDEdit.aspx and it successfully copied the BOOT folder from drive J: to drive C:, so I have a BOOT folder on both C:\BOOT and J:\BOOT but BCDEDIT still shows that it is using J: to boot from: If Windows 7 had a Boot.ini it would be a simple case of changing J to C wouldn't it? But no Windows 7 has to be awkward. So this is where I am asking for help, i've Google'd around but my pea brain can't find the right thing, all I want is to have the "System" on drive C: as well so I can format drive J: for storage (plus if it dies I won't be able to boot at all). TL;DR: J: has the system boot files on it, when I need them on C: so I can format J:, I have copied the BOOT folder from J: to C: using bcdboot c:\windows /s c: . Thankyou to anyone who helps.
