That wouldn't do anything unless you changed the partition that's trying to boot to non-bootable. It doesn't matter if you have a million other partitions it's gonna try to boot the one that is set to boot in the partition table unless you can trick it into thinking it's the primary drive. And even then you'll run into the problem Tav was talking about with major system change.
You wouldn't run into the major partition change if you destroyed or made the main partition non bootable.
Fdisk could do this right?
Anyways whatever its way too complicated for transferring spreedsheet
I had two drives one with a non bootable windows partition that worked fine. I deleted the boot files off of it but kept the folder structures.
