Changing windows boot and system partitions on a Compaq

By dicks390

  1. My Compaq is set up with a small partition called Drive D for system
    information used for the restore function. Due to problems recently,
    Windows XP had to be reinstalled. Unfortunately, it was reinstalled to the D
    drive instead of the C drive. So D is now the boot partition and C is the
    Systems partition, and it should be the other way around.

    Is there anyway to just move the Windows files from C to D and Windows
    files on D to C without reinstalling? I have a second drive where I could
    move the files to and store temporarily.

    :wave:
