After install on secondary HDD can I move Windows back to primary HDD?
For a rather complicated reason I have Windows (Home Premium 64bit) installed on the secondary HDD in my desktop, but I still have all the files from a previous installation of the same version of Windows installed on my primary HDD (My computer was stalling at the BIOS splash screen, and after a power off I reinstalled windows on the secondary HDD because the previous install wasn't working. After getting Windows installed on the secondary HDD I looked at the primary HDD and it looked fine. I did a disk check that turned up nothing too). So basically I'm wondering if there is either an easy way I can move all of the stuff I had installed on the previous copy of windows to the new copy, or if there is a way to move Windows back to the old copy? Ive tried booting from the primary HDD and it just boots from the secondary HDD instead.
