I have 5 disks and had a bit of a shuffle round of files and reformatted. The disk i've installed windows on is disk 4, disk 3 is an empty 500gb I want to format but it is labeled system? when I format it I cant boot windows. Does c: need to be active and system?

For anyone else with a similar problem, I managed to work it out. Unplugged all hard disks apart from c: then reinstalled windows. The installation made a partition on the same drive for the bootloader files. Was then able to format my previous system drive with the old bootloader on it.
