How do make a HD bootable?

  wily earthworm 10:10 11 Apr 2003

I have recently added an additional HD to my PC and have installed XP onto this disk. I did this whilst running my orignial installation of XP on my old HD. Therefore, I now have a dual bootable system which means that I can run either XP installation on either HD. I only intended to keep this configuration whilst I installed all my apps onto the new HD. Now that I have done this I wish to wipe my original HD (using it for data storage) and boot directly to my new HD. However, at the moment I can only boot to my old HD because only this one contains the dual boot files.

Therefore, can anyone tell me what files I need to install on my new HD to allow me to directly boot to it and load my new XP installation?
