As you are dual booting, remove E: only. move drives one up. D: would be Disk0 & C: would be disk1.

There isn't an OS on E:// but the current boot manager is on E://
If as you say it will boot from disc 0 the all that will be left to do is delete the boot manager from E: which i can see via folder options
Provided i can straight of manually delete the said files then i will make this thread as solved
Thanx guys.....


Off to topple some scales...

yes i did, as i said this isn't a dual boot
The issue i was thinking was if the current boot manager is on E:// and i make a new boot manager on C:// would the to managers conflict?
If like said windows will boot from disc 0 then it isn't an issue but i will still need to delete the old boot manager from E:// so presuming i can just manually delete the hidden folder the all should be fine

eek you deleted that post as i posted this haha... never mind

If you are not dual booting, you use the above.

When Windows is booting OK, mark D: E: inactive.

No you don't have to do anything to E: the startup repairs will sort all that for you.

Have a look at Option Two #2 to see how to mark E: Inactive.
