When I installed Windows 8, it recognized a hard drive as Disk 0 and my SSD as Disk 1. I didn't know that it was important to put the system files on Disk 0, with the System Reserved partition, and installed Windows on the SSD. After installation, I saw that the hard drive had a System Reserved partition and a larger partition, which I combined. So it now has one partition marked System Reserved. I installed my programs on the SSD and only data files on the System Reserved hard drive, and everything is working. However, when I swapped in another hard drive in place of the hard drive with the System Reserved partition, the computer wouldn't boot. Thus I'm going to have to do something about it.
In the Disk Management screen under Computer Management, the drives show up as follows:
HDD: Disk 0: System Reserved (D:) Healthy (System, Active, Primary Partition)
SSD: Disk 1: (C:) Healthy (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)
How can I get rid of the System Reserved designation on the Disk 0 hard drive and place it on the Disk 1 SSD without having to reinstall Windows and my programs on the SSD? I don't mind having to recopy data files to the hard drive if gets wiped clean.
