unlike USB you can boot a fully functioning Windows from a eSATA port.
But the Windows I am booting from all programs in Registry are attached to C: fireFox, etc.
I can manually edit the registry but did anyone ever make a program that changes drive letters in the registry for such a situation.
I am very excited about being able to boot MY WINDOWS from eSATA and was appalled USB 2 or 3 ports can't just straight boot into Windows like eSATA can.
I plan to use key new eSATA and USB 3/2 Toaster i.e. http://www.microcenter.com/product/388246/NexStar_25%22-35%22_SATA_to_USB_30_-_eSATA_Dual_Bay_Hard_Drive_Dock To form a perfect boot environment. Right now if I Boot from eSATA it loads my fully functioning Win7 environment from the eSATA drive but it gets mapped as a high drive letter say H:
My 2 questions are simple
is there a utility that changes all say H:\ references to C:\ in registry and elsewhere with a simple UI or is running regedit and search and replace the only way?
Is there a utility that will ensure that the laptop with an eSATA will change say the H: drive to C:
right now if I have a working C: drive and prefer to boot from the eSATA and choose it on the bios boot pressing F10 it always gets mapped to something high say J: or K: and I want my eSATA to ideally be the C: drive when I pick that boot option?
WHAT I HAVE IN TERMS OF TOOLS:
I have googled a few things but its confusing and overwhelming. I have Bart PE and Ultimate Boot disk and Win 7 Ultimate OEM CDs to help....
