I started with Vista on a computer with 3 hard drives. Vista on "drive A" and booting from "drive A".
Then I installed Windows 7 on "drive B"
This process retained the boot manager, etc. on drive A.
So the "boot drive" is drive A which points to Vista on drive A and the preferred Windows 7 on drive B.
I want to get rid of Vista and drive A altogether.
So, it appears I have to move the boot stuff onto drive B.
I have read how to do this but the instructions seem to be for different cases or I don't understand or there are problems.....
If I simply disconnect all the drives except drive B and run a Windows 7 Recovery Disk for a Startup Recovery or Repair, it doesn't find any OS at all and asks that I install drivers. This seems to be going in the wrong direction. Drivers????
If I run the Windows 7 DVD, the same thing happens.
Surely there are some simple instructions to move the right files from drive A to drive B (or something like that) so it will boot when drive B is the only drive in the system.
I was hoping the Startup Recovery would do this as I'd been led to believe but ran into that driver thing.....
