I just had my computer repaired. Had a bad stick of RAM. Before it was fixed, when i started my computer it went to D\: drive. Now when i start up it goes to C\: drive. I would like to know how to put it back the way it was. I did it before, but forget how!!? How frustrating!

What do you mean, goes to? Do you mean you have Windows installed on both hard drives, and now your computer boots from the C: drive and you would rather have it automatically boot from the D: drive?

If so, you must modify your boot.ini file.

Are you using Windows XP? If so, go to:

Start > right click on My Computer > Properties > Advanced tab > Startup and Recovery Settings > System Startup Edit

Now your boot.ini file will open up. If you press ctrl + A it will highlight all of it. Then press ctrl + C to copy it. Come back into this forum, make a reply to this thread and then press ctrl + V to paste it here. I will then tell you how to modify it.

But I have one more step for you to do first, and that is save a backup copy of your boot.ini file on your computer. Once you are done making a reply to this thread, close out your internet browser window and go to: Start > Run. Type notepad and click OK. This will open Notepad. Then, press ctrl + V to paste a copy of boot.ini file into Notepad. Save this copy to your desktop, and name it bootinibackup.txt. You should make no changes to your boot.ini file without having first made a good backup copy of it.

EDIT: Just another coding issue I used { where I should have used [. Duh.
