I recently bought a new Sata 320gb internal drive to replace my 60gb sata internal.
I wanted to start clean on the new drive, so I partition it at 20gb(for OS) and 300gb.
Installed the OS on the 20gb partition and everything seems okay.
I wanted to copy some of the media/docs from my old drive before removing it, so I left it installed during the OS install.
After copying stuff over..I removed the drive to find that I could not boot to my new drive by itself. If I install the old HD and select the OS on the new drive, it works fine. So, seems like the new drive lacks a master boot record, but im not sure how windows formats initially.
Is there any way to salvage this, or will i need to reformat the new drive (without the old HD installed) and reinstall the OS?
Thanks in advance.
