Removing the bootable drive
Posted on 2003-11-24
I have a computer with Win2K on the Secondary Master and Win98 on the Primary Master. I'd like to permanently remove the 98 drive and move the 2000 over to the Primary cable.
How should I handle this? If I just do the physical switch, then the 2000 has nothing to boot off of. Can I just repair or reinstall Win2K without losing the data? Or do I need some sort of boot manager like Partition Magic? Truthfully, I'd rather not go with the boot management utility because I'm trying to simplify this system. On the other hand I don't want to have any possibility of data loss.
