    The quick fix is, in a command prompt with admin privileges:

    Code:
    diskpart
    select volume c
    active
    exit
    bcdboot C:\Windows /s C: /f BIOS
    the system reserved is in the G drive will this command work? how do i open the command prompt? also i have no unallocated space on my C drive

    Your System partition is almost empty, probably no OEM tools on it.
    Don't worry, it will work.

    You will have to change the priority drive on BIOS to the disk 0.
    Detach drive 2 and boot.
    If it boot normally, you can set System partition to non active.

    I dont even know how to set it as non active as there isnt an option for that, and also when i do that command it just brings up a bunch of stuff that i dont even know what is. i really need a walk through of this or something because this is getting more and more confusing

    the final command just keeps bringing up the options so i dont think this is working

    ok well this didnt do anything and it continues not to boot when the G drive is missing , i need to be able to move my system reserve to the C drive but i dont think i can as my C drive has no unallocated space

    Make sure you have spaces in the correct places. Replace the underscores "_" with spaces:

    Code:
    bcdboot_C:\Windows_/s_C:_/f_BIOS
    After you ran the diskpart commands, you did run the exit command to leave diskpart and get back into a command prompt before running the bcdboot command? Also, you need to set your BIOS to boot from Disk 0.
