Windows Boot Manager on wrong partition
I have two drives and numerous partitions. When I installed Vista, it inexplicably put the boot manager on a partition other than the one where Vista resides (I have no other operating system).
This has been a constant thorn in my side, since applications don't have permission to write to the root folder, and I can't run chkdsk on D: without rebooting.
Since it will be time to switch to Windows 7 soon, I would like to get this problem out of the way now. I've used EasyBCD to remove what appeared to be a ghost "Microsoft Windows Vista" entry, but that's as far as I got. Here's what bcdedit and Disk Management say about the partitions:
Disk 0 - C: - Windows Boot Loader (Boot, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)
Disk 1 - D: - Windows Boot Manager (System, Active, Primary Partition)
Can someone please give me step-by-step instructions for using bcdedit to move the boot manager from D: to C:?
