Once again, I come before the BC Gods begging your assistance. You've helped me out several times, hope you can do it again. I'll confess my digital ignorance - so be gentle, but I am pretty decent at figuring things out.
First, a little background:
Rehab'ing an old HP Pavilion a800n running XP. HD failed, so I replaced it with a new Seagate (same specs as OEM), and also increased RAM to 2gig.
(You probably know this, but the a800n has the 4 memory card slots, a DVD drive, and a CD-RW drive)
Anyway, loaded XP and all seems fine....except...I noticed my drive letters are screwed up:
Removable Disk (C:)
Removable Disk (D:)
Removable Disk (E:)
Removable Disk (F:)
DVD Drive (G:)
CD-RW Drive (H:)
Local Disk (I:)
For some reason, it assigned the HD last (I:) instead of first (C:).
Again, being less-than-saavy, I figured 'oh well, just have to remember the hard drive is I and not C, no big deal'. But (and I'm sure you are way ahead of me), as I load and update drivers, etc...I'm learning that it is kind-of-a-big deal.
Although I sort-of knew it wouldn't work, I went into Disk Management, and as I suspected, you can't change the drive letter of the boot drive.
I haven't really loaded anything of significance, so a re-load of XP would be fine...but I imagine it'll just do the same thing.
So, my question: how do I / can I..re-arrange my drive letters?
Thanx! in advance for any help you can provide.
