Hey, just as the titel says i want to delete windows on my old hard drvie and only use it for storage and avoid the annoyance of pressing enter to choose the right windows when starting my pc.
Also, when i try to open programs from my old drive wich is now D: they seem to have alot of problems, like needing to Re-install and stuff, i can't play steam games ( steam is on D: and Windows on C:) it says Invalid Serial key etc. What might be the cause?
I would like to have all the stuff on my D: and only windows and maybe a game or two on C: since its a lot smaller SSD. (120gb).
Will it be possible to have games on D: and launch them without problems? right? I mean, why would there be a problem.
Appriciate the help!

Yes, the games should run from wherever you install them. I think the problem is they were installed when the D: drive was your C: boot drive, right? You need to reinstall them now with the new SSD drive as C:

The easiest way to get rid of the boot choice is to install EasyBCD and use it to remove the entry pointing to D:. You can uninstall EasyBCD when done if you don't need it any more.
