Windows 7: Migrated to SDD but Win 7 partition labeled as drive & HDD not labeled

Migrated to SDD but Win 7 partition labeled as drive & HDD not labeled

Using the Minitool Partition Wizard, I cloned my HDD (Disk 2, 1 Tb) to SDD (Disk 1, 1 Tb). I then went into the BIOS to change boot order. And it works. BUT the win 7 OS partition (100 mb) now has its own drive label (circled in red) And the original HDD has no label and is not showing up in Explorer along side the other drives (right side of pix)

1. Are the missing labels for the HDD (disk 2) a sign of trouble? Or do I need to assign them letters? (Isn't that through formatting? I don't want to format (see 3) until everything is good).
2. And what should I do with the partition being labeled as a separate drive (H)?
3. I want to turn the HDD (disk 2) into a data drive: after 1-2 are fixed, is it ready to be wiped?

thanks,

win 7 SP2

Looks ok to me, assuming Disk1 is the clone and you want to keep it.

You need it. That is your system partition. Some people prefer to remove the letter.

It is simpler just to delete/format the partitions. Unless you have special reason for wiping .
