If you want to boot disk 0 unplug disk 1 so it doesn't confuse the issue
I want to boot from disk 1 when reattach it to the ASUS laptop.Disk 0 stays inside acer laptop.How will it be?

And as torchwood suggested converted the unallocated space from logical to primary(made new partition) with no luck.The problem is not the unallocated space.Run again the fix mbr bootrec rebuildbcd with no luck.Still can't boot when attached to ASUS and can't open to view files when attached to ACER the partition with 574gb.

The small free space you moved would have been the system reserved partition which contained the boot files. It's faster to just wipe the drive and reinstall
