What happens with sispar and after rebooting?

No,I did not do a run Startup Repair.

You need to delete sispar after reboot.

No need to delete sispar. Glad it worked for you Ray.

LOL I was hoping it was self explanatory.

Rt click and run as admin on sispar.cmd.

Enter the drive letter you want for the NEW system partition ( must be a Primary partition with 7 on it)

If you want to include all your current boot menu items ( assuming you have more than one ) type Y when it asks, if you only want the boot menu entry for the New system partition , type N.

it takes about 3-5 seconds.

That's it.

If the NEW system partition is on the first HD in boot order - it will show as "system" in Disk management on next restart.. If you have more than one HD - obviously, on restart go into bios and set the HD containing the NEW system partition first in bios boot order.

Saves all that running startup repair multiple times.
