Yesterday I used a recovery with true image on my system only to come back and see a message:


An operating system wasn't found. Try disconnecting any drives that don't contain an operating system Press ctrl alt delete


So I did this and found out one of my ssd's is the culprit. I have 1 HDD and 3 SSD's in this system however, even after booting up without the culprit ssd connected I tried reconnecting it while in windows only to have the same message in bios again on next reboot. This SSD never had a system on it.


I've never had a problem before doing recovery so I wonder if the smart security firewall was what screwed it up but in either case I really want to have the drive and contents available like before recovery but I don't know what to do.

Is there a way you could post a disk management picture with the fields expanded?  We need to find what partition is Active, which partition(s) are Primary, System, etc.  We need to find out if the one presently marked Active is the right one.
