I really hope someone has a good idea what is going on with my SSD partition of Windows 7 Professional X64 using a Core2Duo processor. I think I may have confused HAL with my old HDD that I currently have in my DVD/CD bay via an Ultrabay Adapter on my laptop.
I had the platter drive with Windows 7 installed first and then got the SSD later on. I installed Windows 7 on the SSD as a boot OS device. I shrunk the old Windows 7 partition on the platter drive and allocated a huge portion of what was left and created a partition for music, movies, etc.
That was my original idea. To use the SSD for fast boots and access and the platter drive for storage.
Now for some reason when I go to task manager I'll see only one core working under Performance. I also used Core Temp 64 it shows only one core also. I got a little curious and chose my old platter drive as the boot. That Windows 7 installation shows 2 cores working in task manager!
After reading some threads it seems that I may have to reinstall Windows 7 on my SSD. I'd probably think it would be wise to erase the old Windows 7 partition on the platter drive.
