Been AWOL for a bit because I caught a virus and had to reinstall windows.  Decided to reinstall it to my SSD instead of my HDD so it would boot faster and all that.  Backed everything up and found I couldn't format my HDD from the windows installed on my SSD and I couldn't do it from the windows installed on my HDD because it was using the information on it.  After a bit I got it worked out and managed to format my HDD but for whatever reason when I boot up my computer is still detecting the windows on my HDD (which isn't there).  Anyone know how to get rid of this?

Hey Barton

 

Could be...Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Administrative Tools\storage\diskmangement

 

Check n see, if the old OS hdd is has an active "system reserve".

Might be my SSD.  I disabled the HDD and it still came up.  Then I completely disconnected it and it (2 windows) still came up.  I did have an installation of windows on my SSD that I thought I overwrote because it was never identified but I guess it's ghost is running around in my PC.  Now when I put the windows disk in it won't even load.  This crap is getting old, fast.

Ya   I had a minor problem going to SSD. 

There is a label or category you have to give the disk.  I keep thinking MSG or something. Otherwise the system does not recognize it.  Moxy knows.

I know you have to set BIOS to AHCI or it won't recognize them at all. I love SSDs
