Hello Andrew,

Did you clean install Windows, or did you mistakenly setup a dual boot?

Could you post a screenshot showing the full layout of your Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) screen to help see what's going on?


For now, you could use the tutorial below to set the top Windows 7 as the default OS to run automatically at startup to not see the Boot Manager screen anymore.
Default Operating System - Change Default Boot OS
Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

It looks like you reinstalled Windows 7 to F from C since that's the only way the booted OS on partition F (signified by the Boot label) would not appear as C itself: When you ran the installer from C it locked out that letter so it incorrectly boots as F.

This is not desirable so you should do it over after you read carefully the steps to correctly Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 - these steps are the same for retail.

Back up all files on the target HD, power down to unplug the HD which you don't want to install Windows 7 upon, boot the installer to delete all partitions and create New to Format as shown in Steps 6/7 of Clean Install Windows 7.

After install, you can plug back in the other HD, back up its data, then correctly delete the unwanted OS by Deleting it's partition(s), repartition as desired. Partition or Volume - Delete
Partition or Volume - Create New

Right lets get this straight do i take out my drive in HDD1 Bay as that used to be C Drive now its F.......
And fit HDD2 (Now called C used to be F ) in Hdd1 Bay then go through the process of clean install I think i did fit hd2 into hdd1 and installed Windows 7 as i failed halfway through installing when it was in hdd2
*Make note to myself Dont play around on laptop when *

If there is still an OS on C and you want to keep it then you can unplug the other HD, swap its data cable to C making sure C is set first HD to boot in BIOS setup, boot Windows 7 DVD to run Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times until Windows 7 starts and C holds the System flag.

If that fails to work then reinstall, which I would do anyway if you didnt' follow the steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

You want it plugged in alone as Disk0, so whatever bay F is in now, since it's currently Disk0 as shown in Disk Mgmt..

Make sure C remains listed as first HD to boot (after DVD drive) in BIOS setup during install and when you plug back in F. If you want to boot F use the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key given on first screen. When ready to delete the old Windows 7, I would back up my data and wipe the F drive with Diskpart Clean Command to get rid of old boot code, then repartition it in Disk Mgmt to use as data/storage, keep a Windows 7 backup image of a perfect install you've set up on C so that you never have to reinstall again.
