2 250GB SATA drives in a RAID-0 configuration (J
1 160 GB drive (C
I originally had XP Pro installed on C, and then added J, and did a fresh install there. C was kept in the machine to copy files from, and as extra storage. There is no OS installed on C, only on J. (It ended up as J because I have several partitions on the 160 gb drive, as well as two optical drives, and also have a card-reader device, and that uses up the drive letters D through I on my system.)
Now, C is dying.
I tried to unplug it, but the computer won't boot that way. It appears C is my boot drive.
I've tried going into the BIOS to set the boot drive to J, but the BIOS can't/won't find J
I've also checked the root of J, and there's no boot.ini, ntcheck or ntldr files present - they're all on C
The boot.ini file on C correctly points to the XP Pro install on J
What can I do in order to change J to bootable, and allow me to remove C?
I can't afford to build a new computer right now, or upgrade to Win7, much as I would like to.
