Hi all,
I have a problem that maybe trivial to some so I would be grateful for some advice.
I have two hard drives in my computer; a 120gb SSD and a 1TB HDD. My ideal set up would be for the SSD to become the system/ boot etc partition and the HDD to be just for storage.
The screen shot below of my Disk Management window shows 2 partitions on the HDD, one of which is the 'system reserved'.

How do I make the SSD the system reserved and C drive while having all of the HDD disk D?

Dont worry about the system reserved part of the other drive, it hold all the boot files, its only 100mb. :)

System Reserve is exactly that. The System Reserve is typically ~10% of the drive and is used to layout the file system and boot records for your system. You cannot do anything about that except use a different OS.
