Ive recently had a computer built for me by a friend, its a performance system and everything else is working fine, but the master/boot drive where windows is installed is G:\ instead of the usual default C:\
I was ensured at the time that this shouldn't be a problem, yet i am coming across difficulties when installing programs.
Basically, most programs install ok, but some are trying to install by default to C:\, where at the moment i have an 8in1 card reader. Obviously the programs cant be installed to an empty 8in1 card reader so im getting errors or the installshield is crashing and spewing out an windows error send report box
These things are crashing before i get any chance to decide which drive to install to, as though they are trying to write some temporary files to a non-existant C:\ drive
Is there any way i can reassign my master drive as C:\ ? Ive tried Control Panel>Administrative tools>Computer management>Disk management and reassigning it in there, but firstly it says i can't rename a primary/boot disk, and secondly i wouldnt be able to rename to C:\ anyway because its being used up by the 8in1 card reader :S
This is annoying me mostly with a game that im trying to install, which will run on my laptop, gf's laptop which are older and slower etc, but do both use C:\ as primary. Thats the only solution i can think of that im trying to install on G:\
Sorry for the long winded question, tried to make it as clear as possible. Any help would by greatly appreciated!
