Windows 8 - Change boot disk - Move Windows to different disk.
Posted on 2013-01-13
I have a Windows 8 PC with two hard drives. Disk 0 has the 100MB system drive partition and is marked as System.
Disk 1 is the boot drive and where Windows is installed.
I'd like to get my current install of Windows on to Disk 0 as I need to re-purpose Disk 1.
I can clone the boot partition on disk 1 to disk 0 easily enough, but how do I tell Windows to look to disk 0 to to boot instead of disk 1?
Obviously I'm trying not to rebuild everything and I do understand the risks of moving around partitions.
