Did you run boot repair with drive d: uninstalled?

If not, you should.
Yes, I did. All is well. I didn't need to convert d: to logical. I reconnected it, deleted the boot directory and the bootmgr file. Rebooted. C: drive is now System drive.

I used EBCD to rewrite MBR, but "device unknown" still shows under Boot Manager in EBCD. I don't care, because it is now booting from c:

I'm a happy camper.

Hi,

I think I have the same problem. I have 2 SATA disks. I installed Vista on the second disk also, but now the first partition on disk 2 is named D: which I want to become C:

I thought EasyBCD would have an option to just move the necesary files?

Hey Bashir,

The potential of screwing up a system completely with this feature isn't worth the risk for us. It's a lot more trouble for us to code in the feature and then deal with the thousands of people that end up with a non-booting PC because they used it wrong than it is for us to guide a couple of people on how to do it themselves :smile:

Welcome to NeoSmart Technologies, BTW, hope you stick around.
You can follow the steps outlined in this thread for all the info you need relating to this issue.
