Drive jiggery pokery

#1
Ok, I dnt know if i can do this but here goes!

I still currently have my 200 gig sata drive as storage and temp partition, and my 160 gig ide drive as system and more storage. I want to swap these around so that the temp partition on the sata drive is the boot partition. However both the partitions are logical drives on the sata - for some reason i didnt make a primary partition on this drive when i parttioned it... Is it possible to convert this partition to primary - or will i need to repartition the whole drive?

Can be done - I did just this - let me find a thread where I did it because be prepared it is going to take you SOME time - plus you will need something like DriveImage or somesuch backup to help you down the path unless you do not mind a reformat....

Linkie will come on next post if I can find thread at my mobo forum..... Otherwise I may not be able to remember details :eek:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
