Moving Windows 2003 boot drive
Posted on 2008-10-13
I have a Windows 2003 server with several partitions on a two disk RAID 1 array. C:\, the boot drive, located on the array contained boot.ini, ntdetect.com, ntldr and C:\windows.
I suffered a machine crash and the registry files in c:\windows were corrupted so I couldn't boot windows. To get up and running quickly, I installed a non RAID disk and installed a new copy of Windows on to it. This new disk is D:\, but the boot files are still located on the old C:\ within the array.
I'm now having file corruption issues on that RAID array and would like to delete and rebuild it this weekend. In the process, the C:\ containing the boot files will be deleted. So my question is how do I make the D:\ the boot disk?
