MBR on wrong drive
Posted on 2011-05-05
Hi i am running Windows 7 Home Premium and have 4 x SATA 2 Hard Drives:
150GB WD 10k Raptor
150GB WD 10k Velociraptor
120GB WD 5400
1TB Samsung F3 Spinpoint 7200
My OS resides on the velociraptor drive but for some reason (maybe because my Win7 is an upgrade?) my MBR resides on the slowest drive i have installed: 120GB WD 5400rpm.
Each time i boot i have to wait exactly 45 seconds until i see the first post screen.
I have an ASUS P8P67 Pro board (new revision intel chipset) and have adjusted the boot device priorities so that only the 120GB WD HDD is selected as primary boot device and have disabled all other devices. If i remove the the 120GB HDD from the list of boot devices the PC simply fails to boot stating "Please select appropriate boot device and restart". So i know that its this HDD that my MBR resides on.
Is there a way i can transfer the MBR to my Velociraptor 10krpm HDD which incidentally also has Win7 installed on it.. and if i did will it remove this 45 second delay on boot?
Any advice is appreciated.
