It should be the first one as it is on the OS boot drive and what windows uses to load.

I know but I no longer have to boot from that, I can boot directly from my HD

Yes, I've now said that five times.

Did you reinstall since you posted the Disk Mgmt screenshot?

You need to interact with us in real time, because you are all over the place and almost reckless.

If you've reinstalled since you posted the screenshot then we need to see another Disk Mgmt screenshot. It's possible you achieved a Legacy Install if it is booting with the HD as first boot priority.
