I have a Compaq desk top. Hard drive 150GB has 5 Partitions, C drive 53GB used/7GB free. while N has 91MB/69GB.
Now Vista Home Premium will not reload/refresh on to C as it says not enough space. Can I load Vista on to N and then reset the BIOS to load from N or rename N to C and C to something else.
Other problem I have is I have a external drive 150GB which if I leave connected she takes 25Mins to fire up from cold instead of approx 2mins.

I can't speak from experience, as I only just did this very quickly to see that it worked, but this support doc from Microsoft seems to be the best instance I've found: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/e...f110521033.mspx.

Cheers mate,
