I have a 2nd harddrive that is starting to fail (data storage only drive), and when I replaced it with a new 1TB drive,
I got an error message and Windows 7 wouldnt boot until I put the 2nd drive in again.
Both the old and new secondary drives are completely empty (however in Disk Manager I can see the old secondary drive is missing 1 mb, so there must be some boot files there).
I have used Paragon Disk Manager before, but completely uninstalled it. But there must be some lingering boot files/data on the secondary harddrive (even though appears to be completely empty).
I have checked bcdedit and msconfig and Advanced System Settings --> Startup and Recovery --> Settings and looks like everything is booting from the C:\ drive.
How can I fix this and put back all boot related files only to the C: drive?
