System Reserved partition on wrong drive.
I recently bought a SSD to install my OS on it and use my HDD for other files.
But when I tried to install the OS with only the SSD, it gave me an error: “No bootable partition”
Then I tried with my HDD and SSD together and then it gave me the error: “Cannot boot from cd: code 5”
So I booted my system up on my HDD (The drive I normally run my pc on) and placed the DVD in the drive and installed it from there.
It worked but i didn’t notice any difference when starting up so I looked what it could be and found that the partition: “System Reserved” Is installed on The HDD witch I use to store other files.
I searched it up and found that that partition is necessary for booting up your drives.
So I tried moving the partition with ‘minitool partition wizard’ to my SSD but it didn’t work. I didn’t tried to delete it.
Then I tried to put the windows 7 disk in my cd-drive when booted up (on my SSD). And remove the cables connecting the HDD when running ( I know that isn’t good) hoping that a new partition will be created (and not on the HDD), but it gave me an error. It does works when the HDD is connected.
And it’s definitely not my windows 7 disk, it works fine on other computers and even on mine before the SSD.
Does anyone have a solution for it so i can run my pc with only my SDD Installed?

The bootmgr will always be located on Disk 0, this is determined by where the drive is plugged in on the motherboard, and is assigned by the motherboard.
So far as installing directly to the ssd and only the ssd,
after confirming you have the latest firmware on the ssd I suggest having a look at this.
