    I've installed Windows XP 64bit at a new pc with 2 unused hard disks.
    After the installation the files NTLDR, boot.ini and NTDETECT.COM are placed at the second hard disk (disk1).

    Problably this is because of the bootsequence in the bios. First booting from disk1 then disk0.

    The other Windows XP file are located at the first hard disk (disk0)

    I want to disconnect disk1 of the pc. But in that case the pc doesn't start up anymore because of the missing files at disk1!

    How can be made possible to boot from disk0?

    Simply copy the files NTLDR, boot.ini and NTDETECT.COM to disk0, plus adjusting the boot.ini at disk0 (rdisk1 changed in rdisk0) and the bootsequence in the bios doesn't work!

    Update: Problem solved! The copy action does work, but the partition of disk0 with the files NTLDR, boot.ini and NTDETECT.COM was not made active!...
