    If this is a screenshot of OP disk management

    Boot Order Windows 64bit Home edition fully up to date.-disk2.jpg

    then as in my previous post:

    From your screenshot bios has handed control to the mbr executable code on disk 2. Which indicates either that disk 2 is ahead of disk 3 in bios boot order. Or you booted into it via manual bios selection.

    There should be a way of changing the boot order in bios setup.

    disk 2 partition 1 is system which indicates the bcd entry already points at the os on disk 2 partition 2 .
    boot order is a list of devices bios checks, looking for something bootable. It hands control to the first bootable device it finds on that list and goes no further. The boot order can be overidden by manual selection in bios setup or by use of the one time boot menu key. If you don't want to have to keep using manual selection, change the boot order list.

    your motherboard manual should tell you where to make changes.

    Sorry now lost, bcd?
    Should system reserved be on OS drive?

    Mind just noticed that the partition that included the OS is not marked as active, is that why it does show up in the main page of the bios?

    With mbr partition style, bios hands control to the mbr executable code which is at the beginning of the disk and not inside a partition.

    the mbr executable code consults the partition table and hands control to the pbr code on the partition marked active.

    the pbr code starts up bootmgr if it is also on the active partition. Bootmgr looks in the bcd store to find out where the os loader is.

    bootmgr starts up the os loader ( winload.exe ) and hopefully the os loads.

    plenty of potential for cock up, but yours looks like it works fine.

    the problem appears to be your bios is not finding disk2 first.

    ****************************************

    MS descriptions are bit confusing:

    The system partition is the active partition that contains the boot critical files.

    The boot partition is the partition you are currently booted into.

    To add to the confusion, it is possible to have separate system and boot partitions ( which you have according to the screenshot ) Or a single partition can be both system and boot.

    @SIW2 Many thanks for your input.
    The manual does say how to change the boot order. F7 then select the Drive and F10 to exit and save. Trouble is once I select the drive F10 is gray out and using F10 does nothing.

    Also, Drive 2 does not appear on the opening bios screen along with the other drives where you should also be able to move OS to the top of the list.

    I will check the logs and upload and upload later today.

    Thanks all for you continuing support.

    The above cloud links typically offer some free cloud storage.

    2nd go with Google, hopefully works, but checking on their website it states with any doc the recipient must have a Google account, Same goes for Dropbox, apparently. Apologies if I have misread their websites.

    The Icedrive account I saved to originally should work without you having an account.

    Chris,

    The link works but unfortunately the file you've posted is the batch file not its results.
