Windows 7: DVD Bootmanager Path

15 Aug 2009   #1

DVD Bootmanager Path

I couldn't find anyone whose had this problem through the search and this is a little different.

My dvdr drive had died when I installed Windows 7 so I extracted the image on a 300gb IDE drive and set it as active.

So as of right now my boot manager is on that IDE drive. I bought a new dvd drive and now and able to burn to dvd... but unfortunately when I boot from CD it automatically goes straight into install rather than the boot manager.

I want to be able to free up this hard drive so I'm wondering if theres a way to switch paths. Anyways... if I can't do this, I'll swap out the 300gb for an old 80gb I have lying around but would prefer to do it the other way.
