Default New ssd install help.

I plugged in my new ssd. Popped the windows cd in and installed windows on it. It boots and works fine but when I go to disk management it shows as one c: partition. There's no recovery partition or anything. I thought windows did that automatically.... What should I do?

Recovery partition is only put there by companies such as HP, Dell, etc. OEM/Retail Windows installs done by yourself don't create a recovery partition.

C: is apparently not bootable. It uses my old ssd to boot. If I remove the other ssd. My new one I just installed windows on will not boot

It installed the bootloader on the other drive then.

To fix it, remove the other drive and keep only your primary drive installed. Repair the bootloader using the following instructions:
