Changed boot drive in BIOS not registering in Win 7

I changed the boot drive in the BIOS to a new drive. I thought it worked but when I check Disk Managment in Windows 7 it still shows the old drive as the boot drive. Is there something I have to do in Windows to finalize the change?

  1. I think the boot loader may be on the wrong drive. If you disconnect the drive and only leave the drive you want to boot from, does it boot? If not, the boot loader is still on the other drive.
  2. Thanks, that solved the problem.
  3. Glad that worked. In the future, make sure and only have the drive you want to install the OS onto connected to the motherboard before installing the OS. This forces windows to put the OS and boot loader on the same drive. After installation you can connect any remaining drives.
