Windows 7: New Hard Drive - I did something a little wrong

You can do it, the repair has to be done at least 3 times to completely move the boot files to the new partition and you have to re-start the PC between each of the repairs to complete the process.
This is the correct way to do it any way.

After you have the PC booting from J: you will have to do this below to remove the boot entry for C: and have only a single OS booting.

Thanks! I do not know how to mark a problem as solved. But, at this point it seems solved unless I do it wrong!
