How to Mark Drive as Active

Looks like what happened to me has happened to others. When I installed 7 it put it on my Recovery D drive. Then I installed it correctly on my C drive. Now when the computer reboots I get the screenshot that shows Windows 7 twice. Somewhere on this forum I saw someone post the procedure to mark the C drive as active which should solve my problem. Can someone tell me how to do that?

Hey there,

to mark the partition as active, right click on My Computer and select Manage. On the left navigation pane, go to Storage > Disk Management. Then select your desired partition, right click on it and click on "Mark Partition as active"

I hope that's what you were looking for,


Thanks for the reply, I will give it a try tonight.
