To start. I have 3 hard drive in my machine.
HD 1 C:\ - Windows XP Pro
HD 2 D:\ - Storage
HD 2 E:\ - Windows Vista Home Premium
HD 1 and HD 3 were set for Dual Boot, meaning I could boot to either XP or Vista. After having not used XP for a good amount of time I decided to get rid of it.
I booted to Vista and in the Startup options removed the dual boot making Vista the Primary boot. Restarted and the Vista OS booted and came up properly. I then decided that I wanted the 250 GB back for storage that windows XP sat on and formatted and repartitioned the HD 1 C:\ drive. This is where my issue came into play.
My Vista OS HD 3 did not come up as I had expected it to, it did not boot at all. I tried changing the boot sequence of the drives in the BIOS but that did not work as well. After trying a few DISKPART options with still no luck I went ahead and installed Vista Ultimate on the HD 1 C:\ hoping I would be able to Dual Boot again. Well I am not able to...
What I am trying find is if there is a way to make HD 3 E:\ that still has Vista Home Premium on it bootable again. All of my important application (*cough*cough*games*) Are on there that I would just assume not have to reload (*cough*cough*beat again*)
Thanks for any suggestions
