I'm going to wait until you get a chance to review the boot priority order before I change the boot order. You might want me to set it different.

so it tries to:

- Hard Drive --- ST1000. if it fails
- USB . if it fails
- CD/DVD .if it fails
- eSATA .if it fails
- Network
Once again... how do you boot from dvd? Just insert it and power on, or press F12 and select CD/DVD?

Make the boot order (in BIOS using F2)

- Removeable Drive (=floppy). If it fails
- USB . if it fails
- CD/DVD .if it fails
- eSATA .if it fails
- Hard Drive --- ST1000. if it fails
- Network

And save it!
I want it to try removable drive, usb,cd/dvd, esata first. All should fail (if no CD/DVD in drive) so it boots from harddrive st1000. Works?

insert a bootable DVD and boot without pressing F12. Boots from DVD?

All works as described above... if so continue. Eject the DVD

Boot normally. Mark the SSD partition ACTIVE and boot. (you can mark it active in diskmangement, just right click on partition-> "mark partition as active") What error message do you get? I think "bootmgr is missing" (that would be great ...we found the ssd). If it boots normally post screenshot of diskmangement please.

If not booting ... change boot order in bios by placing harddisk before esata in the list. Try to boot. It boots succesfully to win7? If not place harddisk even higher in the list.

If I want it to boot from the CD/DVD drive first, I set the boot priority order to boot from CD/DVD first. I haven't tried setting it to boot from the USB first.

This boot order boots the SSD first:
- Hard Drive
--- ST1000 hard drive
USB storage device
Removable Drive
eSATA
CD/DVD
- Network
--- Realtek PXE B03 DOO

Yes. I know.

How can I move the the 100MB portion to the correct drive?

What do you use when booting from dvd? Is that option DVD or USB (you attached DVD drive on usb port?)
I use CD/DVD to boot from external CD/DVD.


I just checked the boot priority order. This is how it is set up right now. This is what it shows when you expand the hard drive and network boot selections.

It boots to the SSD at this time.

- Hard Drive
--- ST1000 hard drive
USB storage device
Removable Drive
eSATA
CD/DVD
- Network
--- Realtek PXE B03 DOO

Have you noticed that I have been telling you that this is NOT my correct boot priority order? See posts 101, 104, 109, 110 and 115.

Forget about "system reserved" it just has the boot manager ( file \bootmgr) and bootmenu (file \boot\bcd)
Old C has this stuff as well. New C (SSD) hasn't yet (if you did clean install, it puts bootmenu in active partition so on system reserved).

You already marked New C (SSD) active... so it's bootable. (SSD) works fine ... your working on it, but boots from system reserved.

If you boot now from SSD...
  • It can't find file bootmgr and bcd file. So it says something like "bootmgr missing"
  • In case it has all boot stuff it boots fine.
So we have to prove it actually boots or tries to boot from ssd.
Step to do:
  • eject DVD from drive.
  • Put CD/DVD on top of boot priority
  • Put eSATA as second option.
  • Put harddisk as third option.
Save it and boot. What happens? What error message?

Most likely it gives "bootmgr missing". Put Harddisk on top again in bios boot priority and system boots fine again.

Yes I read everything. A few times you said it was booting from SSD. But I can't believe it! If you're right SSD is marked System (instead of system reserved) in disk management.
