No, if the steps I outlined above are the correct steps, then it did not recognize disk 2 as a boot device.So it didn't boot using Disk 2 as first boot device ?
Let's decide exactly what you want to achieve. If you just want a backup you have that already with the Images of System Reserved and Disk 2 (C drive).
Do you want more than that ? If so what ?
Goal? I'm worried the hdd is going bad. I originally thought windows was on it (that's the reason behind my apology after finding out the correct drives). I have found that windows is on a ssd (great!) but the system reserve *is* on the hdd. If it does fail, I'm out of luck. I'd like to get the SR over to the ssd that has windows on it (disk 2). That way I can just boot from that drive and make the hdd a data drive, independent of windows.
