Not sure I am following you.

Windows is on Disk 3. Is that where you want Windows?

Disk 1 appears to be completely empty, no data.

What is the purpose of disks 0, 1, and 2? To hold data only? Or to hold some type of operating system?

System Reserved partitions do not normally have drive letters. I'm guessing you did that?

If this is a single operating system PC, the typical way to install Windows is to first disconnect all hard drives other than the one to which Windows is installed. Looks like you did not do that.

If you had done that, you would have 1 System Reserved, marked active, with C on the same drive.

You could mark the E partition active, then disconnect disk 1 entirely, and see if the PC will boot. If it does, then reconnect disk 1 and delete the system reserved partition from it.

If that fails, I'd probably start from scratch---disconnect all drives other than the one that you want to have Windows, and then reinstall.
