Windows 7: View reliability history: What to look for

Windows is on disk 1, C partition.

You have 2 system reserved partitions. You need only 1.

System Reserved should not have a drive letter.

I think you need to copy your boot files from F to H. And then delete F. I assume disk 0 is purely for data. But H is quite small and should probably be enlarged.

Or you could simply copy your boot files to C and then delete both "system reserved" partitions. You need the boot files, but they can be on C or on system reserved. I don't use system reserved on my own PC.

I have no idea if these issues are related to your reliability history issues.

And you probably want to make the C partition show as being part of "disk 0" rather than "disk 1". You'd do that by swapping cables at the motherboard. This isn't critical.

Let others comment. You've got quite a mess and I have a language barrier to some extent.
I see. The mix could have been done 2 years ago when I installed a ssd. Drive G was my drive C with Windows installed on it. I used the software to move Windows to the new drive, but it seem to have kept
some data on the old driveť

System was stable until few week ago, now it crash sometime with a blue screen and reload.

At the moment, I'm trying to enlarge drive H with Partition Wizard
I will unconnect the hard disk and see if PC is acting normally

What is the content of drive F and H. I suppose that drive F is the old Windows installation.

ignatzatsonic, thanks again for your generous help

As things stand now, I'd guess you cannot boot with Disk 0 disconnected. Can you confirm that?

Yes, the oddities shown in Windows Disk Management probably occurred when you moved to an SSD.

If you have no luck enlarging H with Partition Wizard, you can use EasyBCD to copy your boot files from F to C.

Here's a tutorial:

Bootmgr - Move to C:\ with EasyBCD

Notice that your F partition is marked "system". That means your boot files are on that partition.

Notice that your H partition is NOT marked "system". I don't think your boot files are on H, but they should be on H or on C. Right now, I'm not sure if H has any purpose at all.

ok
Partition Wizard was not able to extend the drive because to space was to fragmented. Now, I'm doing a defrag on the SSD.

I thought that it was not needed to do it on SSD. It seem to be quite long

A look at drive F using Partition Wizard show that the drive is not use every day. Last time was August 5.

Bad form to defragment an SSD, but it won't ruin it. Not sure it will ultimately do you any good.

Personally, I'd copy boot files to C and get rid of both system reserved partitions entirely.

Can you or can't you boot with Disk 0 disconnected?

Hello again

I did succeed to defrag and reallocate space to H:
I did try to load from SSD.... You where right, it did nor boot
I did the Windows repair and PC is running with the SSD

I will reinstall the hard drive and get ride of the F partition
Since the repair did create a new drive, I will get rid of the H drive to

Turning off the PC to do this task
