WHS is right. It dosen't matter as long as it boots. Some people have the 100mb partition some don't. I don't have it.

One more question, guys: i attached here a picture.
I would like to change C with E and viceversa.
On the mobo SATA slot number 0 i have the SSD. Why is that in the image as DISK 2 ? The SSD shouldnt be DISK 0 ?
How can i proceed, to change E with C ?
Thank you

Have you changed the primary boot disk in bios to the SSD? The primary boot disk should be on port 0 is conventional wisdom. I don't know how disk management orders the disks. Mine change every so often. Just make sure the primary boot disk is connected to port 0 and that it is listed as the 1st hard drive in bios. I don't think it matters how disk management lists them.

EDIT: In bios I have the CD/DVD as 1st boot device and the SSD as 2nd boot device. That is so if you ever have a problem where windows won't boot or post, you can put in the installation or recovery disk and it will boot to that.

It does not really matter how disk management shows it. My SSD on this system is Disk2 also. I would not muck around with it.

Having the optical drive as first boot device is the conventional wisdom for the reasons Steve mentioned. The downside is that it adds to the boot time because the BIOS will first try to boot from there before it goes to the SSD. You can usually hear it because the optical drive makes cranking noises at boot (also extra wear and tear on the drive). For that reason I do not set it first but rather change the BIOS boot order when I need to boot from a CD/DVD - which is the rare case.

I leave it like it is now
What about the pagefile ? Can i remove it on HDD, or it's better to have it on SSD ?
