Problem with Dynamic Disk Windows 2003 server

I have a dymanic disk on Windows 2003 server. I have somehow ended up with a duplicate of the operating system in a partition after the one used for the active directory!

So I have these all on one disk

F: (SYSTEM)       D:        C: (BOOT)

F: and C: are identical, the only problem is that I can't delete either partition because one is designated as holding the system files and the over contains the boot record.  Also I can't change the drive letters on either. What I want is the System and boot on one disk.

    Also - check your boot.ini settings. It might be that it points to a system on the wrong disk.
