    I have 3 harddisks, all seagate, 1 (the oldest) harddisk (160gb) is very noisy, I'd like to remove this drive but there is a problem.. The vista boot manager is on that drive, so it needs that drive to boot!

    Sometime ago I was running xp pro x64 on this old harddrive, from within windows x64 I have installed Vista on a new sata2 drive so Vista itself is running fast on the new drive..But it still needs the old drive to boot!

    Is there anyway I would be able to fix this problem:

    removing the old disk and making the new sata2 disk the bootable disk on which Vista is installed.

    Thanks in advance for any help:)
