so I have 5 harddrives in my computer
IDE Channel 0 Master = 80gb
Sata Ch 0 = 400gb
Sata Ch 1 = 400gb
Sata Ch 2 = 320gb
Sata Ch 3 = 120gb
I have so many stupid partitions it's not funny... but to start clearing them up I'd like to do a fresh install of WinXP.
I'd like it to be on the 400GB drive on Sata ch0, which is fine, but when windows is trying to install it always puts ntldr and boot.ini etc etc etc on the 80GB drive.
I'm currently living off a bootable windows Live CD, which I'm using to do all my partitioning through Paragon partition manager.
On the 400gb on sata ch0 theres 2 primary partitions, to which I'm trying to install to the firstmost one. This partition is also an active partition. On the 80gb theres only an ext partition with a bunch of logical partitions inside it. Now this leaves 8mb of space that isnt formatted at the start of the 80gb disk, which is where windows *makes* me put the ntldr & co. files, after it makes me format it.
This is just getting rediculous.
All help is much appreciated.
