System testing and End-to-End testing constitute almost the same thing. As per my opinion, System testing can be considered as testing all the integrated components of a system/product/software as a whole, where in data inserted in the first module/component of the product should flow properly and as per the business requirements till the resultant is achieved. Same goes for the End-to-End testing. Source:

System Testing:
System testing means we have to check to whole software step by step. for exmaple check the bank details. if you want transfer the amount from one account to another.that time the user goahed and check all the condition for details. this is called System Testing.

End To End Testing:

End to End testing means we are taking real time data and interacting with hardware and network.

Systen Testing can be limited upto functional as well as non functional testing of the System but when we talk about end-to-end testing all the interfaces sub-systems must come into picture. All the end-to-end scenarios should be considered and executed before deployment of the system into actual environment.

System testing and end-to-end testing both are different.
system testing :
It is collection of testing types.
Once the total application is developed, It is deployed into the clients specific environment. If one performs testing to check is it working fine in all aspects of that specific environment is known as system testing.
End-to-end testing:
To check all internal components successful respond. like client,network,apllication server, data base and etc...
In other words, this testing is meant for checking the inter operability of internal components for successful respond.
