When I select "install in the unpartitioned space on drive 'D'" I don't think it at all unreasonable for me to expect you to you to do that, and it's something of a shock to discover that you thought I selected "There's a Fat32 partition on drive 'C' so stick some of the boot files there instead, and when drive 'C' is removed the computer will just sit there until I get tired of trying repair options and reinstall" instead. Thanks ever so much, love and kisses, Peter.

I think I've been burned there before. I did that. So it stuck them on the other partition of the same drive. So now partition 1, where it's installed, isn't the bootable partition. Partition 2 is the bootable partition. But all it contains is NTLDR and BOOT.INI and similar rot. I am completely unable to express my complete incomprehension as to why anyone ever thought that any sequence of decisions that could lead to that could possibly be sane ones. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE? And how do I fix this?
