bcdedit HELP, please. about boot windows 7

hello every body, I want to help about bcdedit, thanks so much.
now the bcdedit info. is:

path \bootmgr

locale en-US
inherit {globalsettings}

{7effb456-9910-11df-b7da-b1ebfe0c7e6d}
{current}
toolsdisplayorder {memdiag}
timeout 5

Windows Boot Loader
-------------------
identifier {7effb453-9910-11df-b7da-b1ebfe0c7e6d}
device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume1
path \Windows\system32\winload.exe

recoveryenabled Yes
osdevice partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume1

Real-mode Boot Sector

device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume1
path \ghldr.mbr

Windows Boot Loader
-------------------
identifier {current}
device partition=C:
path \Windows\system32\winload.exe
description Windows 7 Ultimate
locale en-US
recoverysequence {7effb454-9910-11df-b7da-b1ebfe0c7e6d}
recoveryenabled Yes
osdevice partition=C:
systemroot \Windows
resumeobject {84975637-78d0-11e0-a8d1-806e6f6e6963}

now I have two Hard Disk. The two also have the same windows 7 OS, I copy the OS to the another HD by Ghost.
Now I want to use only one HD, but the bootmgr device is partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume1 as you can see. so i can not start my computer if i remove the old HD. I want to change the bootmgr device is partition=C:
I try to use the command of bcdedit to change, but I failed.
so anyone have any ideas about the command of bcdedit.

The easiest way to do it is remove the old hard drive and boot into the Windows 7 disc and repair from there.

"bootrec /fixmbr" or "bootrec /fixboot" should work when in the command prompt.

Did you do everything else I said or just those commands in your own process?

To say "I can't speak for all of them" means that I can't vouch for the greatness of ALL Americans. I can vouch for myself, and the people I know, but that leaves roughly 311 million more people I do not.
