PC Will Not Boot Without Drive C (And Its Empty)
This ones a bit tricky for me to describe but Im trying to set it up so my graphics card has its own rail from the PSU. This isnt possible unless I get rid of something that requires a 4-pin connector. I have two hard drives, a 40GB (C:) acting as a master although it is malfunctioning so I had everything put on to the second hard drive, a 80GB (D:). As C: has nothing on it I figured I would take it out, this way I could give my GPU its own rail, more power and the crashing that I experience from having the card overclocked when playing games should stop.
I took C: out, changed D:'s jumper to "master" setting and placed it in C:'s previous position. The computer would only boot so far. I could get to the BIOS where I could see that the drive was reconised. One of the options I could not change in the boot sequence was "Boot from Hard Drive C:" or something along the lines of that. I would need it to boot from D: would I not? I could only get it to boot properly again by changing everything back. Now im here to ask how can I get the PC to boot from D? The only way I can think of giving drive a new letter would be to partition D but that would wipe all the contents would it not?
