Change windows boot drive
Okay... the situation:
Just installed Windows 7 on my PC. Formatted my Vista 200gb sata drive C: and installed x64 over it. my other two drives have music files, documents etc on them. I have previously had installations of Ubuntu and the dev version of Windows 7 that came out some time ago.
Now, after the Windows 7 installation and the pc restarted I got a GRUB loader error (the boot screen for ubuntu) presumably because I deleted the ubuntu partition. So I changed the boot order to one of the smaller hard drives and Windows 7 loaded up. So it seems whatever it is that decides what to boot is living on one of the smaller hard drives. I want to switch it over to my main C: drive where the Windows 7 installation is because I no longer have any other OS on my system. I'd like to keep those drives as seperate removable devices so if windows booting up depends on one of them and I remove it then I'm screwed!
Any ideas how I can change the boot device?
Cheers! P.s. sorry for any incorrect terminology that might not make sense. I just hope you can understand me!
