Disk ids and win 2000
Posted on 2003-03-17
I have 2 hard disks A and B on my machine, both bootable.
(both booting win2k, switchable at the bios level as to
which one I use).
A is on my primary IDE and B is on my RAID IDE.
When I boot up using A, the primary logical drive of A is labelled
C: and I labelled the primary logical drive of disk B to be Y:
Similarly, when I boot up using B, the primary drive of B is
labelled C: (also). and I labelled the primary drive of disk A to be Y:
I've now decided to use disk B in place of A (ie moving from
using the RAID connector to using the primary IDE connector.)
Using ghost, I reproduce the boot image of A on to disk B.
So far so good.
So when I boot up disk B (which is now on the IDE connector
and has disk A's boot image),
the problem is that it thinks the primary drive of B is
labelled Y:, ie as per disk A's image. I think I need it to be C
ie it seems to have remembered that this drive with this ID
used to be labelled Y:.
As such, this is stopping it from booting up.
(ie I get a "Saving personal settings" cyclically, blinking
How can I reset this id so it wont remember the disk?
or perhaps the question is how can I get disk B to boot up.
All suggestions welcomed.
Many thanks in advance,
