Specs: Windows 2000, .5 gib
drive 0 is win98 c:
drive 1 is win2k fresh d:
Dual boot works fine but I wanted to make d: win2k bootable which it is not. I tried disconnecting drive 0, but "drive is not bootable". Did I miss something during install? How can I do it now. My plan was to image fresh install to original drive for backup.
Thanks for any help

yes, but if I want to remove drive 0, I can't boot. Really what I want to do is swap the drives 1 to 0. I thought it would boot automatic but I went wrong somewhere
thanks for the reply

Like Jam said, the boot files are on your win98 drive, if you move it, the system will not boot.

Even if it did, nothing would work, because you cannot change an OS's drive letter. The system's Registry's settings all reference the drive letter that the OS was installed on, changing the drive letter makes all those references invalid.

Operating system drives cannot be moved!!! The Win98 disk will only work as C:, and the Win2K will only work as D:.
