Yes that will allow you to set the c: to active and d: to inactive. But I'd like you to have the bootable CD as well in case we need to go back in and change things.
Do you have the bootable CD download. A file called pwhe52.iso?
If not go back to the site and download it.

If you have the pwhe52.iso (or pwhe--.iso). Put in a blank DVD. From windows explorer highlight it in the right pane.
-Go to File> Open with>Windowindows disc image burner>Press BURN

-------------------------------------
When it burns ok.
restart your computer and enter Bios setup and make the DVD the first boot device.

Put in the DVD and restart (Your talking on the other PC right?)

Even when I boot into Windows then attach the...
