Did you see the other suggestions I gave you earlier?
This is the option I going to use.

I made the "Repair Disk" and have the installation disk ready if I need it.

One last question to verify, I going to make the C: partition as "Active",

Is this correct ?

I don't think the tutorial mentions it, but to make sure of no mistakes, I would only have the windows drive connected. That probably is not necessary, but better safe than sorry.

I am betting the 90-ish MB partition is some type of factory diagnostic partition that got cloned over from another HDD. It won't show anything in it unless you boot from it.

Am I wrong to assume his AS SSD numbers are good, his Winsat shows 7.9, but all this advice now is just to get the WEI correct? The PC is performing as expected? I seem to remember a post saying there was not a noticeable difference after the switch to SSD? A Guy

After going thru the motions, there is no change !

Well almost, C: is now active, but the 96MB partition is still there. There was no change in the WEI and the notes are still the same.

Is it safe to merge C: and E: together now ?

You didn't complete the steps. After C boots with System Active flags moved to it, you were to delete the boot partition to its left.

If this does't help then do the Clean Reinstall with the Diskpart Clean and partitioning commands I gave you which you didn't acknowledge.

I can right click on E: and click on "Delete Volume" ?
