reassigning boot drives

I have a rx7620. Rather than reallocate the DVD to the cell 0 partition for a re-image, I just swapped the drives. Did the install and now want to put the drives back in Cell 0 and boot.
How do I modify the parameters in the boot menu to point to the correct drive?
Thanx
Jim

Re: reassigning boot drives

Hi,

have a look at the EFI tool bcfg
or

create a new boot option using the boot config menu and delete the old entry.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: reassigning boot drives

Hate to sound like a moron but....
I have tried to add the boot option using the EFI menu as well as bcfg.
The string I need to add tp Cell 0 as a boot option is:
01. HD(Part1,SigD0BCB3F4-F8FD-11DB-8AA0-000000000000)/\efi\microsoft\winnt50\ia6
4ldr.efi "Windows Server 2003, Datacenter" OPT

Using bcfg it gives me an error about paths
Using the EFI menu it wont let me enter the whole string.
Ideas? Tutorial?
Thanx
Jim

The procedure for Windows is different, see

Re: reassigning boot drives

Now I am attempting to use the NVRBOOT.efi utility.
It wont let me modify the OSLOADER paths!

Select> m
Enter OS boot option to modify: 5
1. LoadIdentifier = Cell 0 Windows Server 2003
2. OsLoadOptions = /REDIRECT /NOEXECUTE=OPTOUT
3. EfiOsLoaderFilePath = 189f4818-28b0-11db-b1e2-000000000000 :: \efi\microsoft\
winnt50\ia64ldr.efi
4. OsLoaderFilePath = 1c32c16c-28b0-11db-b1e2-000000000000 :: \windows
Enter var to modify: 3
This field currently not modifiable

Press enter to continue

How do I make it let go?!?

This is such a PITA.
All I want to do is point it to the correct boot drive!
