The boot files will always be placed on the active boot partition of your drive - which is almost always C. You could change this if you wanted to by using FDISK and setting a different partition to be the active one. There are only three files that go on this partition - ntldr, ntdetect.com and boot.ini. The rest of the OS files will be installed on the "system" partition, which is whatever partition you designate to contain the \WINNT folder when you install. Hope this helps!

In future, I would advise against trying to get people to go to an unknown web site. I'm sure you are completely innocent of any wrong intentions, but I, along with lots of other security-conscious tech consultants, will not go to any web site thatis not familiar to me without a really good reason. I hope you don't find this comment offensive - it's not meant that way - but the Internet world can be an ugly place.

thanks a lot. i cant help you anymore. do you know who helped me finnaly setting up worlds first 3d-panorama-applet. i did not get any help from usa but from italy and france. and do you know why only after several(5) months? because my italian friend--a real 3dtv-expert has been boycotted too. the other one comes from france. check also horror stories of an other expert at http://www.3dmagic.com my website: http://www.europanorama.tk or http://www.europanorama.ch.vu
the only reason why i am setting up is you will reflect a little bit why there is so much troubles all around the world. help eachother could prevent a lot. we have here in my town a press-monopoly. you can imagine how fearful a lot of people are.

Hi Michael,

The boot files (C root folder files) will be placed on the first active hard drive.

This is normally the C: drive.

Just make sure that you set the C: drive partition to active when you partition the drive with fdisk.

Generally speaking, Windows will run a little slower IF the alternate drive is a logical drive on the same physical drive that includes the C: drive.

This is because the first partition on a drive has the fastest disk access time.
Norton Speed Disk canbe set to place a fixed size swap file (virtual memory) at the front of the C: drive to speed up performance.

to my understanding: my idea of having the bootfiles on c and windows on d will run my pc a bit slower but more secure?
i will setup from cd, then choose d for windows.
after that i will run norton speedisk which will allocate the swap at the bestplace. this was always my intention when using speeddisk. similar when using fixed place in windows compaired to windows choosing(temporary location of swap), right?
