Windows 7: System is on 2ndry drive

10 Feb 2011   #1

Win7 Ultimate x32
System is on 2ndry drive

I tried to uninstall a spare drive and noticed my computer would not boot. Once I reconnected and went in Disk Managment it shows SYSTEM under the system reserved partition for the 2ndry drive/spare I want to remove. Is there a way I can migrate these settings.

Attached is the screen shot.

Make C "inactive" and you will be OK. The 100MB partition is standard in Windows 7. It contains the bootmgr. Use the bootable CD of this program to inactivate C. The controls are in the Partition tab > Modify.

Hello riana, welcome to Seven Forums!

Please post a maximized snip of the entire disk management drive map as that doesn't show what we need to see; also what are the 2 OS you have on the separate HDDs?
