Looks like they have a boot disk available now. You might want to add it? Easy Recovery Essentials - NeoSmart Technologies

Anyone tried it?

Hi Wolfgang,
I guess the boot file has been copied over to C after doing this tutorial but what can we do with the first or original partition it's on
I really don't like the it being on dual boot anymore with this 400mg partition :/
Yikes now it's listed as E
Accessing it says it's empty ?

Delete E in Disk Mgmt, boot Partition Wizard disk, rightclick C to Resize, drag left border all the way to left, click OK, Apply.

Thanks Greg,
Looking at the free space on E it does seem to have something on it ?
Can I delete with mini tool ?

I thought we created that partition a few weeks ago to be the System Reserved partition? Did you change it to C recently? Why?

If you want the 400mb onboard C then resize otherwise you can just delete it as it is useless now that the System Active flags are moved to C.
