W7: How to MOVE 'System Reserved partition' to a different drive.

Hi guys.

I have a SSD called C: (Disk0) where windows 7 is installed.
and I have another HD Called E: (Disk1).

Basicly, My HD called E is dying. So, I can still use it but it's crashing often etc.
I want to remove it but before this, I need to move the "System Reserved partition" on my SSD C:.

So, I saw this post on your forums: Moving System Reserved partition to a different drive

But it doesnt work since my partition has "no letter".
Here is a screenshot.

Basicly, I just want to move "System Reserved Partition" on my Disk 0 C:.

I hope you can help me !
Thank you and sorry for my english
