How to make disk bootable?
I have dual boot and Vista is installed on drive D.
I want to disconnect (remove) C drive and make D the only disk.
How can I make it bootable?
I do not have any programs installed yet.

Hi,

Before you disconnect C:, run diskmgmt.msc and make D: active. Then boot the
system with the Vista DVD and run a startup repair.

I tried that.
Disk repair cannot repair.

Hi,

Check that the system BIOS is loading it as the primary boot device.

With only the Vista disk drive connected, follow steps 2 through 15 at
