Windows 10: Deleting System Partitiojn

    Deleting System Partitiojn

    I DO NOT have two OS's installed just one.

    However after installing it says that both my HDD and SSD are both system, boot, hibernate.

    I can not format or delete my HDD it says that it can not do so because the empty, blank HDD is a "Healthy, hibernate, boot, system drive"

    How do I go about deleting this.

    I'd guess it can be fixed. It can in Windows 7.

    You should probably post a screen shot of Windows Disk Management so we can see what's going on.

    How many hard drives did you have connected when you upgraded to Win 10? SSD only? SSD and HDD?

    Hi... Can you right click on the Start Windows at the bottom left and then Select Disk Management . Once there can you right click on the SSD and see if there an option "Mark Partition as Activate " . Also do you know whether in the bios your SSD drive is selected first in the boot order ? Once you have done that restart your computer and see if that helps. What ignatzatsonic

    I had just the SSD and HDD, and it used both apparently
    Media and Games, have been added since as partitions to the 1TB drive that was used by windows
    Things circled in red are how it originally was when I installed it before partitioning.

    Archive the Drive is a USB Drive

    In Win 7, I think you'd resolve it by marking the SSD as active, disconnecting the HD, and then running System Repair several times until the System flag showed up on the SSD rather than on the HD.

    Win 10 may be different, but I'm sure it's correctable. You want to get to a point where you can boot with the HD disconnected.

    While you've got the HD disconnected, you may as well swap cables so that the SSD is connected to port 0 and appears as disk 0 in Windows Disk Management, just as the HD now does. You can usually get away with C being on Disk 1, but on rare occasions that can be a problem.
