Windows 7: Method To Change Windows Bootloader Location?

Method To Change Windows Bootloader Location?


I installed Windows 7 on a second partition on my dad's laptop a while ago.

I am now trying to remove the original Windows Vista partition which has the "System" marker in info in DiskPart. Removing Vista from the bootloader in EasyBCD causes an "Operating System Not Found" warning on boot and requires Startup Repair to be run from the Windows DVD which replaces Vista in the bootloader.

Is there any way (preferably without reinstalling Windows 7) to change which volume Windows attempts to boot from? I had previously run "bcdboot C:\WINDOWS /s C:" before I got the OS not found warning.
