How do I move the boot sector from the old drive to the new one?
I installed XP on my old 320GB drive it went pear shape so installed Vista on a new 500GB drive, I've moved all my data onto other drives and my 500GB drive so now the 320GB drive is empty. I formatted using the Vista boot disk then Vista wouldn't start because I had formatted the boot sector, then I repaired the boot sector but it put the boot sector back on the old 320GB drive.
Now am I right in thinking if I remove the 320GB drive or at least disconnect it, it will put the boot sector onto the 500GB drive or will it just go bonkers? thanks.
