  1. 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.

    :)

  3. Disk 1 and Disk 2 Switch When Disk 2 Installed

    I have a dual-boot system and just replaced my primary HDD with a SSD. Because my computer insisted on installing the System Reserved partition on the alternate boot HDD, I removed the other 5 HDDs while I clean installed Windows 10 on the new primary SSD.
    That worked. System Reserved is in Partition 1 and Windows 10 is in Partition 2 of Disk 0 (the new SSD).

    I then shutdown, reconnected Disk 1, and completed a clean install of Windows 10. That worked out fine. Windows added a selector to choose between the two Windows systems. All seemed well.

    I shutdown again, reconnected Disk 2-5 and restarted. As I recall everything looked fine until I restarted again. When I shutdown Windows displayed an update dialog "Don't shut down your PC" that lasted for a few minutes after which time the PC restarted.
    When I checked Disk Management Disks 1 & 2 had switched and the Alternate Boot Disk is now Disk 2.

    I have checked and rechecked the cabling for the 6 SATA cables and they are correct. Also, any time I choose the Alternate Boot Disk in the Windows boot selector, the PC restarts and then boots the Alternate Boot Disk which significantly delays the boot
    process.

    I built this computer in 2009. It has BIOS and a dated i7 920 processor. The BIOS can boot from a USB connected HDD but not a USB flash drive. So, I've been using ISO DVDs for installing Windows 10.

    Since this post, I have gone through all of the BIOS setup screens and found that Disk 0 is SATA CH0 Master, Disk 1 is SATA CH0 Slave and Disk 2 is SATA 1 Master. The first two disk in the boot order were SATA CH0 Master and SA2A CH1 Master. I thought that
    might be what caused the Disk 1/2 switch so I promoted SATA CH0 Slave to number two. However, I've rebooted several times looking for Disk 2 (CH0 Slave) to switch back to Disk 1 but it hasn't happened.

    What's causing this and is there anything I can do about it?

    Would reverting the HDD boot order to CH0 Master and CH1 Master, and also moving the Alternate Boot Disk to the CH1 Master work? Does BIOS/Windows number the disk in the following order: (#0) CH0 Master, (#1) CH1 Master, (#2) CH0 Slave, (#3) CH1 Slave, (#4)
    CH2 Master, (#5) CH3 Master? That would match what I'm seeing.

    Thanks.

    Bill

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

    Cannot merge C drive (disk 0) with unallocated space (on disk 1)

    You cannot combine space from two separate physical disks. You have two choices:

    1. Replace your C drive (disk 0) with a larger disk, or

    2. Move some of the files from the C drive to a D drive on disk 1. Be very careful moving files from C to D; moving the wrong files can render your PC inoperable.
