I have discovered that some important Windows system files are not where they should be, and I'd like to know if I can move them.
My system runs (I thought) from my D: drive, which has the usual \WINDOWS directory. However, ntldr resides on my C: drive, which otherwise contains only data (photos, music, etc). msdos.sys and boot.ini reside on C: too.
This is a big surprise to me, and not a welcome one. I suppose it has to do with the fact that I installed Windows (some time ago now) to D: while I had my C: drive attached; and maybe Windows can't cope with that unconventional set-up.
Is there anything that I can do about this, short of re-installing Windows? I am praying that a re-installation of Windows is not the only solution; it would take me days to return my computer to normal operating status.
