Almost correct. 100MB system reserved only needed if bootmgr is there. but also if you use bitlocker. This is not the case I assume. So you're right.
If you do it the way you say the bootmenu will be on SSD ... but still pointing to old HDD.
We still don't know if he has a system reserved btw (didn't read it in post). Also don't know what partition is flagged active (so has bootmenu)
Sorry I am still quite confused. First I think we should put some names to all these partitions
HDD-P = 1Tb hard drive with windows 7 ultimate - personal
HDD-W = 1Tb hard drive with windows 7 pro - work
SSD-P = 180 GB solid state drive - personal
SSD-W = 180 GB solid state drive - work HDD-P
-100 GB of usable space ~40 to 50gb used.
- On boot this one the default choice. HDD-W
100 GB of usuable space ~40 to 50gb used. SSD-P
- 60 GB of usable space - Probably less than 5gb uses (fresh install)
- This should be the active partition on the drive. SSD-W
- 100 GB of usable space - When I tired to copy HHD-W to SSD-W through acronis I had to make the partition the same size and was not marked "active"
- When this failed I tried driveImage XML and cloned the HDD-W over top the SSD-W what overrode the partition. This gave me the same failed result as Acronis.
If I have both HDD and SSD plugged in my HDD boot manager seems to win and will be choosen.
Right now I SSD only plugged in so it boots into that. When it boots up I see in the boot manager the same choices as the HDD one.
If I choose personal everything works as it was a fresh install.
If I choose work it loads up to the login screen and when I try to log in I never get past the ""setting up personalized settings for: web platform customizations".
I can load into my work machine through safe mode however I don't see any my files what should be on the desktop. Windows also warns that the account I logged into is corrupt or something like that(the message is long and don't remember).
It seems like the partition is sort of there but not 100%.
