I have a desktop with two hard drives. I installed Vista on one of the hard drives, and later on, I installed Windows 7 on the other one. so I could boot into both operating systems.
However, I no longer want Vista and I want to remove the hard drive that Vista is installed on from my computer and use it elsewhere. However, when I remove the hard drive with Vista, I can't boot into Windows 7 either. When I put the Vista hard drive back in, the desktop boots fine into both operating systems. I've tried using the original installation disc to repair Windows 7, but it couldn't even find the installation.
I have a feeling that the boot files for Windows 7 could be on the Vista hard drive, even though I installed it on a separate hard drive. I'm not sure though. If someone could help me boot into Windows 7 using only the Windows 7 hard drive, that would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
