I just recently built my own PC and when it came to installing XP I decided to create two partitions, one for normal use - 210gb and one for gaming 40gb.
However, unfortunately i created the gaming one as C: and my main partition as E - as of yet I hadn't got round to installing XP on C:.
Today I was trying to patch a program (don't ask) and the patch needed the directory to be in C: so I wanted to swap the name of the partitions. Couldn't figure how to do it so I got hold of partition magic and decided the best thing to do would be to merge E: into C: and then create a new E partition later. Right? Ahem.....
So now I find myself at the wrong end of the boot command manager asking me to choose between two 'default' partitions - so do I take the red pill or the blue pill?
The first proposed solution I can't do as it means booting from the XP cd and going into windows explorer.
So.... I just installed my HDD as a slave on my dad's comp. Can see both the drives and can access the 40gb c: drive but I'm unable to open the 195 gb E: drive and in the properties tab it says it contains 0 bytes.....
If I installed XP on the drive accessible on this PC could I access the other partition through that or am I going to have to reformat?
