If I right click on the 96MB partition, it shows "empty"
Clicking on properties it shows this. Should I delete it ?

I read that as well. I don't know what else to do that hasn't already been done, and I have no clue why it is reading that partition, even when the SSD is the only drive up and running.

The contiguous space note for the SSD explains it. A clean install will fix it. While it would be possible to defrag the ssd, I would do the clean install. I do not usually recommend a clean install, but this shows Computiac needs to.

Can you locate and take a snippet of your disk management information? Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > "Left Column" Disk Management. You can also find it by clicking the Start button and typing in Computer Management > Disk Management.

That was going to be my next suggestion, Kelly. But, if the boot files are on the 100MB partition and it is marked as active, that is the way it is supposed to be and is referred to by windows as the system drive. If the 'C' partition is the active partition, I would say delete the 100MB partition. It serves no purpose, right?

COMPUTIAC, did you partition the drive before installing?

OK
If this 96MB partition is useless can I delete it or merge it ?

I think I did, bought a Partition program, can't think of the name.

No, it is the active system partition. You can delete it, mark the C drive as active and run startup repair 3 times to get the disk to write the boot files to the C partition, but there's always the risk.
