No. I haven't got the time to start again from scratch. It just isn't worth it. Windows runs plenty fast enough for me from the HDD, maybe the SSD takes a second or two off loading times, not worth it.

But you had windows on the ssd according to post # 56 and it looked just fine.

You could have been working on it while you still had windows on the hdd.

It would take me bare minimum of a solid week's work to get a new Windows set up how my old one was. I don't have that kind of time for little gain. If my old Windows on my HDD was crawling along then maybe but it isn't, its rapid. Also, as I said a while back, I want to have FSX on the SSD and if I had Windows on there as well I wouldn't have enough space.

Alrighty, post a shot of disk management if you want, we`ll see how you did.

If you had used Macrium reflect to put an image of the hard drive on the ssd, it would take you all of 30 minutes.

But you did it how you wanted and that`s most important

It wouldnt fit though addram, that was the problem. Im off the system now but the new set up is simple - 2 disks 2 primary partitions. C: the hdd drive as system active and d: the ssd just as a standard partition. No system reserved sections anywhere

You had both booting off of System Reserved on SSD, so how did System get moved to HD? Did you use EasyBCD to move Bootmgr - Move to C:\ with EasyBCD - Windows 7 Forums?
