Specs: Windows XP
When I installed Windows XP, I tried to install it onto the 20GB hard drive but it chose on its own to install onto my 120GB hard drive. So the 120 GB drive has the windows files but the 20GB drive has the boot files. I tried copying the files from the 20 to the 120GB but no luck. When I hook up the 120GB drive as the master it is unable to boot. I don't want to lose any of the files I already have on the 120, what do I do?

I think it is fixboot from the repair tools when you boot to the xp cd. Used to be fdisk /mbr and might still be try one or the other.
