    Due to a bad MBR I installed WinXP on a new harddisk, into which I tried to restore my latest backup from an external disk. The result was that the old harddisk, set as IDE secondary master (which in spite of the new XP-installation still had been assigned with the drive-letter C), tried to use the old damaged MBR, where the only choise for booting is the old disk C:/ . The new disk with the restored backup is E:/ (IDE primary master).

    Using Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2010 Suite I would like to
    1. convert my new disk E:/ to C:/
    2. make a bootable MBR in the "new" C:/
    3. restore the latest backup into the "new" C:/.


    A guidance through a step-by-step instruction for doing this would be much appreciated!!
