I had two copies of windows XP Pro running one on drive C: and another on drive D: I was not using the one on drive C: so I stupidly formatted drive C:.
Naturally I lost my boot loader and needed to reinstall windows to get access to my drive D: windows, I edited the boot ini text to start only the drive D: wiondows and want to delete the drive C: windows and use it for a back up drive.
1. Move windows XP Pro SP3 from the 40GB drive D: to the 40GB drive C; without any problems?
2. delete all of windows except the boot files, and if so, what files do I need to keep and how do I store them on C:?
3. Use partition magic to make just one drive, even though windows was loded to drive D: and every call would be for drive D: and not C:? Then make a new partition D: as my back up partition?
Or what do you suggest to fix this without fully updating and setting up all the programs on the new windows on the now drive C:.
Any help would be appriciated.
