2 80GB HD's, 2 win2k3 OS's on seperate HD'd. One boot.ini on C:\. I need one on D:\win2k3 to make a ghost backup of win2k3.

I forgot to disable my C:\ when I installed win2k3 on my second HD so it put both win2k3 boot loaders boot.ini mbr etc.... on C:\. If I disable c:\ then my win2k3 on D:\ will not boot without a boot.ini. Surprise surprise but if I copy the boot.ini into d:\ it still will not boot my OS on d:\ without C:\ being enabled. I just set up my server on D:\ and want to make a ghost copy on C:\ or vice versa as also a couple on CD or DVD.
This so when not if the server goes down I can simply boot from the other HD and ghost a good OS back to the drive that went down.
I put too much work into the win2k3 OS on d:\ and win2k3 on c:\ has had nothing done too it.
I need to make my d:\ drive bootable since it has the d:\windows directory in it.
