After my own confusion, I now realise that the issue I have is, that Disk1 seems to have a partition I did not know about, and when I plugged it in after a while of not using it, it seems to have effected the current setup I have.

I need to investigate if not having Disk1 plugged in will effect my boot up.

As it has active on it, do I need to set the partition on my Disk 3 drive to be active first?

If it doesnt effect boot up, then I can just reinstall it and remove the partition?

If it does effect the boot up, what are my options?

Thanks for your time.
As I suggested in post #9, this is the easiest test. Then you know whether the 100MB partition on that disk is needed or not.
