Ihave a laptop running XP SP3 on a older tired 150Gb Drive.
I wanted to upgrade the OS to Win 7, but onto a newer 320Gb drive.
The MS Upgrade version is Win 7 Home Premium from XP.
In order for this MS Win7 upgrade software to work, the laptop needs to boot from the XP drive.
I was prompt to either upgrade (keeping my old files) or (Do a complete Disk OS upgrade). I chose the second option and selected to do this on my newer D: Drive.
Everything upgraded fine.
However, I noted that upon bootup, I was prompted to boot wither in XP or Win7.
Either choices, the laptop still needed to boot from the older C: Drive.
Through Disk Manager, I noted that the System files was on the C: Drive. Thus explaining why it was booting from it.
Is there a Utility or instruction steps that would allow me to transfer the C: Drive System files onto the D: Drive, so that I can boot in Win 7 without needing the older C:Drive?
