I initially had an XP system several years ago. I installed Win7 on a different hard drive and I currently dual boot (though I have not used the XP partition in a very long time).
Looking at my partitions under one of the partition manager programs, I see that my Win7 partition is active+system, and the WinXP partition is active+boot.
Of course, the nomenclature is reversed with the Windows-built in storage manager, where the XP partition is listed as system, and the Win7 is listed as boot.
Can someone explain how the boot drive is not also the system drive? Also, how do I change it so that the boot drive is the same as the system? Is this related to how BCD reads and boots the hard drives?
EDIT: The reason for this is I am attempting to clone my Win7 HDD onto a SSD and I believe this is preventing a successful transition.
