    Hi Snuffy,

    If it is not showing in Explorer - have a look in Device Manager.

    Click View > Show Hidden Devices - expand DVD/CDRom drives.

    See if you can rt click it and uninstall it from there.

    OK back. No I did not delete D:
    I find in BCD an entry: Name: Windows Recovery Enviorment (Recovered)
    Recovery Windows Device: Partition = D: (93111MB)
    I left that alone. then Diskpart
    list volume
    Vol 0 I = DVD
    Vol 1 J = DVD
    Vol 2 C = Volume-6 48GB = disk 0 partition 1
    Vol 3 E = Volume-4 58GB = disk 0 partition 2
    Vol 4 F = Volume-5 78GB = disk 0 partition 3
    Vol 5 G = Volume-7 24GB = disk 1 partition 1
    Vol 6 H = Volume-8 34GB = disk 1 partition 2
    Vol 7 D = Volume-1 90GB = Disk 1 partition 3 -labeled Volume-1 C:

    now I also ran list disk partition, and above is actually what I find.
    D: the fake CD Device is acutally Volume1-90GB C: windows 7

    It seems that ASRock and BIOS will really allow things to be come jammed up tight.
    I also notice my old IDE HDD on the IDE DEVICE is not found or seen
    so I know it has nothing to do with the MESSed up Drive indicators.
    starting to get confused but then I am seeing some lite- The HDDs go back to Win98 ME - beta test Whistler - then XP beta test Vista then Vista Beta test Win7. not Win 7 only.

    That why in 2 I said boot from the DVD.
    Sorry, I thought you wrote for #4, prior to executing #5:

    4. Change to the drive labelled Volume-1 from above output example c: may not be c:

    and, I thought that was a HDD...

    My error....

    No problem. Every thing still seems to be working OK. I still have the CD Device=D: and even going to only 1 HDD. it remains... I'll live with that.
    bcdedit gives;
    Windows Boot Manager
    identifier {bootmgr}
    device unknown
    description Windows Boot Manager
    locale en-US
    inherit {globalsettings}
    default {current}
    resumeobject {7800cce8-7c49-11de-bc70-801ac4a4f209}
    displayorder {current}
    toolsdisplayorder {memdiag}
    timeout 5
    Windows Boot Loader
    identifier {current}
    device partition=C:
    path \Windows\system32\winload.exe
    description Windows 7
    locale en-US
    inherit {bootloadersettings}
    recoveryenabled Yes
    osdevice partition=C:
    systemroot \Windows
    resumeobject {7800cce8-7c49-11de-bc70-801ac4a4f209}
    nx OptIn
    I wish the identifier
    device unknown (wish it read partition=C:
    description Windows Boot Manager
    but recon i can live with that....
    The help has been SUPER DUPER and I have really learned a lot for the assistance.

    will bcdedit -store c:\BCD -set Partition=C:
    get rid of device unknown or is it
    bcdedit -store c:\BCD -set Device Partition=C:

    make hidden and system files visible.

    On the N: you'll find bootmgr

    Copy it to C:

    in BCDedit change "device partition=N:" to "device partition=C:"

    that's it.
    what is the correct cmd to do this.
    I do understand 1st save/export the BCD so if it does not turn correctly I can import if all fails. and does not read correctly.
