Can you post a screen shot of Disk management?

Most likely the Recovery Partition.

It is probably the 100mb Hidden windows partition.

Problem solved..went into disk management and saw the one disk did not have a name, so I called it "F" and that solved the problem
Thanks for the visits

You should NOT add a drive letter to the 100mb System Reserved partition.

Let us see the requested screenshot.

You did come here for our advice, where we've helped others with these issues daily for years?
