Hi Sorry I wasn't clear I will try and explain in more detail The machine was originally set up Windows 7 installed on the SSD (C
and I put all my user data on The 2 TB Drive.(D
I then installed Ubuntu on the 500 GB Drive (E
along with the boot loader.
While trying different physical configurations of the drives I realized that because of the way I had installed I could not have just the C: and D: drives connected and therefore information vital to booting up the system must be on the E: drive (500 GB)
Because the system takes 30 to 40 seconds to boot up I assumed that I need to move some part or all of the boot up data from this drive to The SSD so that, during initial booting, and the bios set with the SSD as the first HDD, speed would increase dramatically (or maybe I am missing something).
What my question is, is can I now simply change the setup to enable this or as Keruskerfuerst put it (Partitioning?) would I have to reinstall a re-partitioned SSD.
Could I achieve this by simply installing Ubuntu on the SSD and then reformat/reuse the 500GB drive and of course having the SSD as the first HDD to boot.
Here is a windows capture view of drive setup now.
I hope this clarifies.
P.S one good thing is I am learning about Linux as we go so even if I don't get resolution I am hoping for I will still have gained a lot.
Many thanks once again.
