I have a Windows 2003 server which someone else loaded. It's at a remote site. I connected to the server and configued it with DCHP, and DNS. It's also a DC. It's been configured with a C and D partition. Everything's been working great. I went to configure DFS share on the D drive and it complained that it wasn't an NTFS drive. I went into device manager to reformat the drive and that's when I saw it. The D drive is a FAT32 partition but it's also the System volume, and the C drive is NTFS and is also the BOOT volume.

Is there any way to move the system volume over so I can reformat the D drive as NTFS? Or do I need to reload?
