    I currently have two hard drives on my computer, an IBM something or another at 5k or so RPM, and is 12Gigs. I also have a Western Digital 60gig that I have bought at 7200 RPM, and since my IBM is getting old and getting tons of cross-links, I want to switch my boot files over to the 60 gig, as I want to get rid of the 12gig one completely. Now, I want to know if there is a way to do so without formatting the 12 gig and re-installing XP to the 60 gig HD. :confused:

    Simplified version: I want to boot off my 60 gig, but the 12 gig has the XP boot files since I just got the 60 gig. I want to transfer them to the 60 gig without a complete reinstallation and reformat.
