How do I move my system partition?
I have an interesting situation. Disk 0 is my D: drive, and Disk 1 contains
my C:, which contains Vista.

The volume on Disk 0 is marked as being the system volume. Just about
everything else (boot, paging, etc) is all on disk 1.

How can I make Disk 1 (the one containing the Vista install) the system
volume?

Thanks!

First run Disk Management, and set the primary partition on Disk 1 to
active.
Then remove Disk 0, configure your system so the BIOS boots from Disk
1, and follow steps 2 through 15 at

Ignore any references to Windows XP.
