K...I found a difference in the Securities field of Disk Properties. This is what's listed for D-drive System reserved section I want to delete:

I just noticed that it is listed as active in the drive info...it's just not tagged as Active like yours is.

Maybe it's already done and I don't need to do anything else but alter the tag discription

Can I do a valid boot test without erasing the original system section on D-drive, or do I need to commit and erase everything from D to know if I've accomplished my goal?
Are my eyes bad?

Don't I see "active" attached to the C drive in your picture?

Mark System Reserved as inactive and reboot.

Then, disconnect your D drive (pull the cables) and see if you can reboot.
Nope...your eyes are good, brother. It's my ignorence that's holding us back

You're a freaking genius!

It worked, and once I rebooted it added "system" as a property to C-drive automatically.

EasyBCD automatically makes the drive it copies system reserved files to active and I missed that when I did the transfer...my sincere apologies

Thanks very much for hanging in there with me, ignatzatsonic...I know it must be annoying as heck to be helping someone who's not carrying their part of the load in the process

I'm fixed!!!
