Heading says it all. I straight swapped a suspect drive ('C' and the only one) with a later equivalent and it has been allocated letter 'I'. Why did this happen? Drive 'C' has now been allocated to my Scandisk card reader. Seems to be a problem loading BTopenworld s/w as it examines Drive C for sufficient space before installing and so errors. There doesn't seem to be an override to go look elsewhere. Am I likely to encounter any other problems? Should I rebuild XP again? And if so how do I ensure my hard drive is allocated 'C' ?
There is a way to do it click here , PCA reader, but it might be tricky. You might be safer disconnecting all drives, reinstalling the main drive and see if it's recognised as the C: Drive then. But as a lot of the registry entries will refer to Drive I:, disconnecting all other drives and reinstalling XP might be the safest bet.
