    Move FF Profile from Win7?

    I am trying to move my Firefox profile from my Win7 to W8CP, and I cannot find appdata. Does it still exist? Do I need to first unhide hidden files and folders?

    Edit. Nevermind. It was just hidden, and unhiding it worked just like it did in 7. Got my profile moved!

Move boot loader from primary Win7 drive to secd. Win8 drv
I have Win8 successfully installed on a secondary single SSD drive. I want to test it, work on configuring it over time. My primary drive (2 drives on RAID 1) has Win 7 and the boot loader. If I remove my Win7 RAID array permanently, what do I have to do to boot from the Win 8 drive? Thanks
