Hello I hope someone can help
Awhile ago I had to do a fresh install of windows7 ultimate . I did this to a new Sata 2tb drive wile the old drive was still in the desk top. I directed the new install to have sys and data in two different partitions on the new drive. I then proceed to import all my data and user profile. Every thing worked well. I did notice when booting I had two win 7 options and could boot to either my old corrupt version or the new. My problem is now I want to remove the drive with the old win 7 (it is in a swap drive bay) so I can insert my back up drive. Windows will not boot. "It says Please insert boot cd" This happens with both drives. It seem to need both to boot. Also if I try to hot swap the old win 7 drive in the swap drive bay it will not let me select it for removing.
I hope I described this clearly.

Thank you in advance for any advice.
