Did you deliberately assign that D drive letter to System Reserved?

I wouldn't do that.

System Reserved is typical and is found on most Windows 7 installations.

But it's NOT required. I don't have it. It can be avoided and you apparently had avoided it until you ran the repair.

But, it's NOT typical for System Reserved to have a drive letter.

Off the top of my head, I'm not sure of the negative consequences of it having a drive letter, but it's not standard.

Just remove the letter from the system reserved partition

But now, I guess because you ran startup repair, all the correct files are on C, so in theory, the system reserved partition can be deleted altogether and the unallocated space can be added to C and it will look like this. Mind you I do not use a page file, that`s the only difference you`ll see.

That decision is totally up to you.

Brian is right. I had originally missed the disk management picture. Your C partition contains the bootmgr. No need to copy it. I have removed my prior post so that the issue does not get confused.
