Win7 boot system, help! Tags: Boot HD Windows 7 Last response: March 6, 2010 5:40 PM in Windows 7 Share zibizibi February 24, 2010 6:15:16 AM Hi I want to disconnect one of my HD, but if I do so Win7 does not boot anymore (what the hell??). Apparently he needs some boot file which lives on the HD I need to remove. So how to make Win7 able to boot without the presence of another HD where he does not live anyway ? That is, how to make Win7 "autonomous" on its own HD ? More about : win7 boot system aford10 a b $ Windows 7 February 24, 2010 10:51:54 AM Try removing the hard drive. Then use the windows 7 repair tools (f8 on startup), to repair the boot files, or do an installation repair. zibizibi February 24, 2010 12:13:48 PM Why should I "repair" anything if nothing is broken ? Is there any faster and more logical way ? Related resources Help Win7 Boot Install USB on WinXP - Forum Help !

But in my opinion, that Win7 puts essential stuff in other HDs is like a company which builds a brand new house and puts the circuit inside a neighbour house : totally nonsensical.
