You will have to make the Vista drive the active boot drive. Use GPArted to do this. Then make sure all your boot info is lcoated on that drive or you will not be able to boot into any OS.

After making the boot drive Active as Mak explains, you'll probably also have to run "Automated Startup Recovery" from the Vista DVD, if I'm not mistaken?

Most likely. I was thinking that maybe moving all the files over would prevent this issue from happening. But most likely not. The Startup Recovery will still have to be performed.

The biggest thing is making the drive active and boot.:wink:
