I know we have had a number of threads (not sure if in legacy or more current) about changing drive letter assignments etc. And I know there can be any variables to account for (IDE, SATA, even external, plus FAT32 and NTFS etc. etc.) but I can't help feeling this would be a good subject for a stickie posted thread? I am not trying to start such a thread, but I'll certainly chip in my own experience, particularly because I presently have 2 IDE and 1 SATA drives in this rig and whilst I have gone the conventional way and put my MBR and C: partition onto the Master IDE disc I am about to attempt to change that and make my SATA drive the one with the bootable partition (not sure if I will succeed though!). Anyway, what do others think? Can anyone find or extract information from the various threads I remember with different strategies for this into one thread and if we manage that should it be stickied? Just a thought.... I know I would appreciate it right now if it was there!
