I used to have a dualboot setup with Win98SE and XP Pro. I have two hard drives. The C:drive had win98. The D:drive has XP.
I no longer use win98, and I have removed it and everything else from the c:drive. Everything, that is, except those three key files: NTDetect.com, boot.ini, and ntldr. They sit happily on their own in the c:drive.
I have left things like this for some months, however now I want make the drive with XP my c:drive and free up the other hard disc that used to have win98 (I might replace it latter for a larger disc)
Now how do I do this?
Has anyone ever done this exercise themselves. How did it go. How did you achieve it. And did it work???
One idea I have is to copy those three key files into the root of the D:drive, and then get Partition Magic's Drive Mapper to cause drive letters to change.
Firstly by changing c:drive to something like n:drive, and then changing d:drive to c. How risky is that. Or perhaps there is a recommended way to do it. (Google didn't come up with the answer)
What do you folk think...
