As I said, a pic of Disk Management would help us visualize things, but all I can see "wrong" is that you have your boot files on the spinning drive, not on the SSD.

<b>Is there a tutorial of how to get to the Disk Management that you want?</b>

Type disk management in the start box.

That should lead you to a screen that looks like this.

Take a screen capture of it and post the pic.

Try Greg's recommendations in his post 18.

As you can plainly see, the Disk Management screenshot is not fully readable.

Please type Snipping Tool in Start Menu, select Rectangular snip, draw a box around the full drive map and listings, save file then attach.

I see enough to know that this is a mess. Looks like we have to go back to square 1.

Yes, wondering why the only System Active listing is on the CD-ROM drive.

Please tell us what is on each partition once we can see them.

Not shown at the bottom is Disk 0, the CD-ROM drive. Previously, a recovery disk was in the drive.

Gateway C: is is the original disk with Windows 7.

Gateway BU E: is a data partition I created on drive C:

SSD F: is the drive I'm trying to get active.

I did use the suggested program in the tutorial to migrate the system files to the SSD.

Thanks for your advice and patience.

Paul.
