How can I move C: drive where it belongs?

Hello every one, this is my problem, my letter C: is in system restore it shows this when I go with disk to repair disk, when I load drives it does not take me to system 32 any more it looks like my computer, first drive is F: I think, somehow, when I did dispart I diskscramble them, because I was trying to fix a bootmissing error I got......I activated more than 1.......... got this last error because I was trying to bring f11 factory settings to my second OS, which my husband had suggested we just use as storage, this was years ago I thought I could do it, but somehow even though I changed boot in bios apparently did not take, and went straight to C: so... thinking I still had a second OS, I tried bootrec/fixboot and I found my self with element not found, so I have to bother you and ask if any of you think there is any hope for this nice omelette I have made out of my drives. or if it is good for parts now. (lol parts are not even good now.....)

So what do you think?

Sorry I forgot both C: and G: are same OS windows 7 64 bit Home Edition restoring to factory settings on f11 I got the message error 0xe0ef0003 ............................after it had taken C: away -.- seemed like it was working fine......after error when I booted again that is when I had bootmgr missing error.

Thanks.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
How about uploading one of these,
Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

You can try using Start and type
msconfig
Go to the Boot section and see if you recognize the correct os and make it the default

Each os once booted to it will show it's self as C

If just a drive confusion just swap the sata port on the mother board might be the easiest thing to do ?

Thank you ThrashZone for your reply.

I personally like easy but I know nothing about computers, I don't know what a sata is and I would love to give you pictures I can only do that by camera at this point I cannot go to start comp will not boot into windows is a desktop and I am actually in a laptop now. I will look in to the sata and maybe that is the answer thank you for suggestion I will look into it and will let you know if that fixed the problems ok?

As you rightfully said, you seem to have no clue about computers and should really not mess with them. But if you post a picture of your disk management, we will try to get you over this problem.

Press Start and type disk management. Then bring that up, make a snip of it and post it here.
