  2. System Reserved Partition on Disk 1 not Disk 0

    The results were the same as before: Windows is installed in a single 477 GB partition on Disk 0 and the System Reserved is in a 500 MB partition on Drive 1. The rest of Drive 1 is unallocated. This is identical to the configuration I had when I asked the
    question.

    The Media Creation Tool used to created the install ISO DVD is v. 10.0.14393 downloaded on 12/13/2016.

    I followed your instructions:

    • I selected Drive 0 and deleted the existing Windows partition.
    • I clicked New and Apply. Windows then formatted Drive 0 as a single primary partition.
    • The existing System Reserved partition was still on Drive 1.
    • So I deleted the System Reserved partition on Drive 1 and the just created Primary partition on Drive 0
    • I then selected Drive 0 and clicked New and Apply again. Same result a single Primary partition on Drive 0. Drive 1 was left unallocated.
    • Upon completion of the install
      • Windows occupies about 15 GB in the only partition on Drive 0
      • The 500 MB System Reserved partition was placed on Drive 1
      • The rest of Drive 1 is unallocated.

    How can I get the System Reserved partition to be placed as the Partition 1 on Drive 0 with Windows installed in Partition 2?

    Thanks.

  3. System Reserved Partition on Disk 1 not Disk 0

    My PC was dual-boot with the 500 MB System Reserved and Primary System partitions on Drive 0 and the Secondary (2nd on added) on Drive 1. Then I started having boot problems which apparently were caused by Disk 0 errors. I would often get "Scanning and repairing
    drive" notification during bootup. Then Windows went through some extensive repairs during one boot attempt and added a 500 MB Recovery partition in an unallocated area of Drive 1 after the System partition. I think it was called Recovery. Eventually the computer
    wouldn't boot at all.

    Now I've replaced the Drive 0 HDD with a 500 GB SSD drive and completed a clean install of Windows 10 on a New 200 (195.31) GB partition on Drive 0 with the intention of the System Reserved partition being added by the Windows installer before the System
    partition on Drive 0. That's not what happened, the 500 MB Recovery partition on Drive 1 was replaced with the System Reserved partition. So, I repeated the Windows 10 clean install on SSD Drive 0 and deleted all partitions on Drives 0 & 1 before adding a
    New 200 (195.31) GB partition on Drive 0 and selecting Drive 0 for the Windows 10 install. Windows again placed the System reserved partition on Drive 1.

    Why is Windows insisting on installing the System Reserved partition on Drive 1?

    What do I need to do to get Windows to place the System Reserved partition ahead of the System partition on Drive 0 leaving Drive 1 completely unallocated?

    Thanks.

    switch disk numbers: I want Disk 0 to be Disk 1 and Disk 1 to be Disk 0

    Hi, My computer contained a normal HDD hard drive. I recently upgraded to a SSD. The original HDD is Disk 0 and the new SSD is Disk 1. The windows OS is on Disk 1. I want to dual boot my system with Windows and Ubuntu with both OS being on the SSD. Since
    the SSD is Disk 1 the Ubuntu install goes directly to Disk 0 because Disk 0 is first on the list. How can I switch the two Disks so my SSD drive is Disk 0? Thanks.
