I'm running ME on C drive and XP Pro on D drive with duel boot menu. I am going to replace C hard drive with new "large" hard drive and install XP Pro on the new drive. Is there any way to save my current "D" drive boot capability with all of my normally installed programs?

I am hoping to make a clean install on the new drive. Any way to change the boot.ini after a clean install to regain access to D:?
