I am sure this is a common problem but I can't find a specific answer to my question: How do I change the default drive that Windows boots from?

I have three hard drives. C E and F. I forgot to unplug E and F when I was installing Vista, so it decided to put the ntldr and boot files on my F drive and the Windows and System files on the C drive. I think that this is absolutely retarded, and I have no clue why it did that, but I need to figure out how to move those files over to the C drive without messing up my installation.

Does anyone have a solution to this problem? I am sure it has happened to someone else before...

It almost makes you feel like your in a musical, and everything is fine and dandy, and you're the star.
And then that's when I woke up in my desk cubicle looking out the window. How lame.

You change it in your bios, and every motherboard has different BIOs.

Check your manual.

No no, I want to move the boot files to the C drive so that I can remove the F drive if I need to, which I am going to need to soon when I start messing with my computer again.
