change primary drive letter
Posted on 2003-10-28
My primary hard drive crashed and I am trying to setup my secondary drive as the primary drive. I loaded windows XP on it when I originally formatted in just in case I needed it as a boot drive. Somehow though I set the drive to the letter ‘F’. Now, when it is my primary drive the boot drive is letter ‘F’. I tried to reset it to ‘C’ drive by using control panel>computer management>disk management, but when I highlight it, right click and choose “change drive letter” then choose “change”, I GET THE MESSAGE “Windows cannot modify the drive letter of your system volume” error. I tried using FDISK from windows ME but it didn’t let me change the letter. Any way I can do this without booting it up as a slave in another computer?
