Ok, well this is long and complex but I'll do my best to explain... After attempting and failing a BIOS update that was meant to correct a problem with the eSATA connection of my external hard drive, the update somehow screwed up my main partition of windows, I'm not sure how exactly, some part of the system was affected and the startup wouldn't get past the Windows screen without restarting the computer, safemode worked though. Anyway I had my 80 GB drive in two partitions, so I installed a second copy of windows XP on my empty partition and got it running. Now to the main problem, the system drive for windows is set as the former C: drive and contains the boot.ini..While my second partition is the boot drive. I would like to be able to format the useless partition and to do so without permanently screwing everything up requires that I move my Boot.ini file to my second partition; which is the main problem. How do I move this file to my new partition in such a way that windows continues to recognize it as my boot file?
