    Which ssd has Windows 10 OS...


    Windows 10

    In another thread I was helped "cloning" a ssd to another ssd.

    When I look at the My PC, and the list of drives, how can I tell what drive with the OS is operating? I can't see any indication.

    Thank you.

    If you open disk management, it is normally the one with C: drive on it.

    Sorry NavyLCDR. I should have explained further.

    After the C drive was cloned to another ssd, it was assigned the letter D. I then went into setup and told it (the D drive) to be the drive that loads. Hence, my reason for asking. I don't know if D is actually loading or C still is.

    Regards, Paul.

    "Boot" marks the powered-on Windows' partition. Page File and Crash Dump are following Boot by default.

    I was suspecting that. I tried changing Disk 0 to a C drive by removing the Disk 1 and booting from the Disk 0 drive but the screen filled up with a boat load of text. Also telling it to boot from the D drive in Setup obviously doesn't work.

    Any ideas?

    Need to see the results of:

    Code:
    diskpart
    select disk 0
    list part

    Looks like I did it wrong. Can you please be more specific with the steps?
