Thank you all for your input.
I've gotten contradictory replies but I think John John and Wally are
probably correct. I've come to this conclusion because:
1. The BIOS is set to boot from the Disk0 drive ("C" drive) and Disk1 ("G"
drive isn't even listed as a boot drive in the BIOS).
2. The "C" drive is listed as the (System) drive in Disk Management.
