Changing Boot Drives

  1. So I installed a second Hard drive this weekend. And I want to create a new partition on the new hard drive, which will hold my boot files. So I want a partition of my second hard drive to be my main boot device. (Like 20gb)

    Then I’m going to combine my first hard drive, and the remaining space left into 1 partition.

    My Local disk has my Boot, Page file, and Crash dump. I want to move this to my new partition. (Second HD)

    I tried moving the entire windows file in my local disk to the second hard drive, half way through it wouldn’t allow me to move all of the files.

    How do I do this without re-installing windows?
