    My Partitions Are Horribly Wrong

    So I have had this computer for ever so I don't really know how this happened. I want to delete a partiton on my hard drive but in Disk Management it shows that the partition I want to delete has got system and is active. On the current partition I use also has Boot, Page File, Crash Dump. I was wondering if I could move the files from my D drive so I can delete it. It would also be good if I could move the system files that I don't need in my C partition to the System Reserved.

    Your boot files (system partition) should be E:, the 100mb System Reserved Partition. Use EasyBCD to move the boot files to the 100MB system reserved partition:

    Changing The Boot Partition

    Once you boot your computer and disk management shows the System Reserved partition as "System" and you are booting OK, then you can use MiniTool Partition Wizard free to delete the D: drive Partition and expand your C: drive to fill the space (or repartition however you want).

    I know there are Windows command line commands that you could use to establish the BCD on E: drive (system reserved partition), but would not be able to tell you what they are until I was at home later today.

    I would have moved the bootmgr to C. Why bother with this 100MB partition. It is useless for most people. It only complicates things like imaging.
