  1. intergation data partition in HDD into ssd


    After migrating the system and OS +programs from HDD to SSD, I am left with the choice of either keeping the Data Files ( < 5Gb) that I had in the HDD as a separate partition in the SSD or integrate it into the c drive in one large partition .

    If I want to integrate it with C : can I just copy the files in a folder to Users /user name/?

    :)

    Saving free space on SSD (Regarding multiple obligatory partitions on main drive)

    Gerry Here just copy-paste some irrelevant response.

    Well, **I've figured it out**. Here my solution (I Take no responsibility from any damage that might arise from this process, and I do not guarantee it to work for u.)

    We'll assume u have 2 disks; SSD and HDD.

    Also NOTE: I Work in a GPT-Disk partitioning scheme, I don't know if it's applicable on dos-style MBR partitioning.

    General-methodology wich we are going to work with (or TL;DR).

    • Delete all partitions on all drive
    • Install Windows on the HDD Drive
    • Install Windows on the SSD Drive (yes, twice!)
    • Repartition the HDD to free up and reallocate as we wish (The only parition that HAVE to be there is the EUFI System (Fat) )
    • After freeing up HDD space, move user folder to the HDD
    • PROFIT
    And in more detail:

    THIS GUIDE ASSUME THIS IS A FRESH PC - THAT U DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING U NEED ON EITHER DISKS.

    * - Asterisk, not a real step, just additional information

    • Boot into windows 10 installation
    • Clear ALL partitions on BOTH drives
    • Let windows install itself onto the HDD, We'll call this installation win-hdd
      • There is no need to actually boot into this OS.
    • Boot into windows 10 installation
    • Let windows install itself onto the SSD. We'll call this installation win-ssd
      • *What would happen now, Is that windows detects the recovery and eufi partitions and does not need to create such additional partitions on your ssd. It would only create a 16MB windows reserved partition.
      • *Your boot partition would be hdd/eufi; But since windows detect it's own bootloader it would allow you to duel-boot between win-hdd and win-ssd(default)
    • Optional: During windows-ssd first run wizard switch to audit mode (CTRL+SHIFT+F3)
      • *We would use audit mode to:
        • * Optional1: Repartition hdd
        • * Optional2: Change "Users" folder to the hdd.
        • * If u do not want to move Users folder, u can do 6.2 After win-ssd fully boots instead
      • Repartition hdd & move Users folder:
        • Using a 3rd party tool such as "MiniTool Partition Wizard" you can do the fallowing *as you wish*:
          • Delete win-hdd partition
          • Delete recovery-hdd partition
          • Delete windows reserved (16 mb) partition.
          • You can also later move the EUFI to the start of the hdd disk, if needed
          • Create new partition (free to use) on hdd.
          • Make sure to properly assign drive letters to all drive as u wish
          • Fallow
            this guide
            to relocate the User folder (Starting from Step 2)
    • Boot into windows-ssd; If u do not know which one (int the OS selection screen) It's safe to assume that the automatically-selected one is the win-ssd.
    • If u have not performed 6.2 Yet, this is the time to do that now.
    GLHF.

    W7 Hard drive partition issue

    to get rid of that 100 meg windows partition that setup creates for you on a new install on a blank hdd:

    - press shift+f10 when on the partition management screen in setup <-- this opens a command prompt
    - diskpart <-- start the windows command line partition management tool
    - list disk <--- list the installed hdds in this computer for the next step
    - select disk 0 <- might have to replace 0 with the number of the correct disk
    - clean <-- this will erase all data on the disk you selected one step up- dont use the wrong disk!
    - create partition primary <- creates a primary partition taking up all space on the drive, adjust the command if necessary
    - exit, exit to exit diskpart and the command prompt
    - click refresh in partition manager and select your newly created partition and install to that

  4. intergation data partition in HDD into ssd

    win10 Inaccessible boot device, on desktop after adding ssd as os and hdd as data disk.

    My i3 desktop started to be slower. I added SSD, made SSD first boot device and installed windows 10. Unfortunately OS loaded from HDD. The HDD had bitlocker on partition 3. I recovered data to external. I deleted system reserved partition of hdd and left
    data partitions of hdd untouched. PC could boot from SSD but HDD not detected. Checked in bios-present, boot menu-present, device manager-absent. Tried to refresh device manager, disconnect and connect while PC was on, there was no symptoms that I connected
    a hard drive. Restarted several time to confirm that HDD is not detected. Tried to boot from HBCD Julia Queen (Windows 7 Mini) there were HDD and SSD both.

    Next, I copied all data from HDD and deleted all partitions on both drive. Installed win10 from USB only partitioning SSD and leaving HDD unallocated. On Windows 10 I went to diskmgmt.msc and partitioned HDD to two partitions. Copied all data there, and
    rebooted. Now, while booting windows 10 displays: "Inaccessible boot device". What's wrong here?

    There are many questions in mind but what to ask and what to not?
