    Understood but even if it boots, it won't be right and still be a mess. The Recovery Environment will be from Windows 8. The method I suggest will be as if you do a fresh install.

    Windows 3.1 to Windows 10

    Windows 10 does the 450MB recovery partition - which is already on disk 1
    windows 8.1 recovery is 350MB - which is on disk 0

    but who knows what is where or why...

    Still do not even know if the OS on D: will even boot..

    No. The 450MB was the left over from his previous upgrade, he wiped out the System Reserved then re-installed Windows 8.

    I didn't go through the entire thread here, but could it be a UEFI vs Legacy BIOS issue? (like the mobo is set to UEFI but the OS was installed as Legacy - GPT vs MBR disk?).

    That has been the problem since the begging, I never could boot to the SSD since the wipe of the HDD, that had the boot loader on it. I just got back from work, sorry for not responding and thanks

    No feedback? Every suggestion that was posted, I tried, it failed, I responded with what it said and what happened, then I keep getting told to do the same stuff...that was already suggested and that I already had tried and it had already failed. I posted exactly what was on my screen after each suggestion failed. Not sure how that isn't feedback

    Did someone already suggest to try to switch the 2 drives physically? (Make SSD as Disk 0 and the HDD as Disk 1.)

    I appreciate the help, so this will be my last question, from there I will figure it out hopefully. Now, it appears that the 400mb is raw and needs to be set as unallocated. Since it is 100% free, and that 400mb is on the SSD, will formatting do any damage, or no since it is all free space anyway. Thanks!
