Windows 7: System Reserved HD?

Another odd thing this time around is that in My Computer the reserved now appears as a drive with a drive letter.

thats alright thats easily fixed, go t your start menu and right click Computer, then click manage, when the window opens, click "Disk Management", right click the System Reserved Partition and then go "add or remove a drive letter" (might just be called drive letters cant remember =/ and im at work and cant check) when the window comes up, select the letter and then just press remove.

Martin, thanks for the tip. Now to just figure out why the OS made a system reserved on the other HD. Maybe that's just a normal thing for Win7?

nope I have an almost identical setup to you HDD wise and mine is where it is supposed to be, If I were to take a guess I would say that either, at some point you had vista on the other HDD and it confused 7, or the HDD was plugged into SATA port 0 at installation.... then again it could just be Windows being "creative" it seems to do that alot

Nope, never had Vista. I had Windows XP Home before. So what is "where it is supposed to be" look like?

The 100MB partition will ususally end up on the Port 0 disk.

silly question (or not maybe) but did you delete the System reserved from the HDD on port 1 after you plugged it back in?

No. I was going to format the disc after I got back on the desktop, but I haven't yet.

aha thats why you can ignore the System Reserved on HDD port 1 thats the one that was causing you the issues to start off with, the one on HDD port 0 is the one you need to keep

But the C drive is the one I want to keep, right? That's on Disk 1, not Disk 0.
