BCDEdit allows for editing the bcd store of the current system drive (C: drive). Is there also a way to create and edit the bcd store of a secondary drive, so the system can boot from it later on? (For instance, by physically moving the drive to another machine as the primary disk)

Run your BCDEDIT commands using the /store parameter:

bcdedit /store E:\boot\BCD /enum
