    PC booting issue

    Hey guys!

    Yesterday the power went off twice, once while I was browsing the internet, the other immediately after, during reboot.

    Now, instead of starting properly, Windows prompts me to reinstall it, unless I boot directly from C:.

    After trying the repair and recovery tools to no avail, I decided to format the drive and do a clean install, but the problem still persists.

    My hard drives---and their corresponding partitions---are the following:

    Any help is very much appreciated!

    Hello and welcome to the forums. I would do another clean install with all drives disconnected except the OS drive

    Remove the 40GB DISK 0. Currently it's the drive you are booting from and why you can't boot.

    Swap the SATA connector from it to 1TB SATA just so it shows as DISK 0 in the future.

    Boot the install media and delete all partitions on the 1TB drive which should now be DISK 0 then click Next, let the installer create the partitions it needs.

    Once the install completes you can reconnect the 40GB drive but why bother since it's so small?
