Move the actual boot loader to different partition?

  1. Hi,

    Is it possible to move the whole boot loader to a different partition?
    Here's the current setup:

    P1 Dell Utility
    p2 Vista boot loader and old o/s (was C drive of old o/s)
    p3 Data
    p4 Vista o/s

    Can I move the the whole boot loader to p4 and then set p4 Active in the
    MBR (subject to BIOS geometry translation limits)? I noticed in BCDEDIT
    you can create a new "store", but it's not clear if this will actually
    install a partition boot sector at the same time?

    (I don't care if the whole thing breaks trying to do this)
