Making slave HD bootable ::help please
Hi I hate to join and the first thing i do is post a question, but i need help. ive tried researching and i get so many different answers.
anyways, any comments would be greatly appreciated. thanks!
Situation : I have two hard drives. My computer boots from my Master (C: ), but my operating system (winXP) is on my slave (F: ).
I want to remove the C: drive and replace it with a new one with much larger capacity.
Q : can i simply remove the Master, replace with the new drive, boot from CD-ROM and format the new drive as bootable and have it as drive letter C:? would that work or am i being stupid?
or is there another way? (id prefer not to have to reinstall windows)
when i tried setting my slave to be the master it wouldnt boot, it can only boot from C: or CDRom with F: set as slave....
