Is there any way to make a partition NOT a system partition?
I recently acquired a 60GB SSD and want to migrate my current system hard drive to the new drive. However, when I go to the Windows Backup manager to create a system image, it wants me to copy ALL of C partition and ALL of D, when it should only be C. D drive is full of a bunch of crap that I do not want included in the system image. If there even are system files on D, by no means is copying the entire partition necessary!
Therefore, is there any way to make partition D NOT a system partition? I never wanted it to be part of the system in the first place. Arggg!
Help much appreciated.

Yes. Please post back a screenshot of your full Disk Management drive map and listings using Snipping Tool in Start Menu and we will give you the steps.
Normally you would mark C active using Diskpart from Win7 DVD Repair console or Repair CD, then run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots to write the MBR to C.
However there may be complications unseen without the screenshot so wait til we see it to tell you for sure.
