Man you're quick!! Thanks for that Bare Foot Kid! I think I'll leave things as is. Should I assign a drive letter or "label" this partition, say "D"recovery"? Or just leave it as is? Any links to System reserved info?

Just leave it as it is, this way Windows won't 'see' it and try and store stuff there.


Have a look at #3 in this to see the Repair my Computer link the SysResv adds to the F8 safe mode menu.

Good point! Thank you once again! I'll check it all out. I will report back after I reconnect the other internal drives. I'm sure I'll have alot more ?'s.

I reconnected all the drives and executed the F8 boot menu; worked splendidly! Every drive was listed in the pop up. tested with a few restarts and each OS recognizes all the drives and I'm able to browse all. I'll include a couple of screen caps. Thanks again. I'll mark this thread SOLVED!
