How to change the drive letter of the boot drive in Windows XP SP3?
Posted on 2009-07-02
Earlier i partitioned my 250 GB hard disk into 2 drives in my laptop. one is 50GB(C:drive) and another is 200 GB(D: drive).
OS installation files and system files are in C drive.
Recently i formatted C: drive and i tried to reinstall the OS. When i am installing OS we have an option of choosing in which partition(drive) we want to install. Under that option i got D: drive with 50GB and C: drive with 200 GB. my drive letters was interchanged.
C: drive = OS with 50 GB space
D: drive = Others with 200 GB space
C: drive = OS with 200 GB space
D: drive = Others with 50GB space
I also tried to change the drive letters in the disk management but i got an error "windows cannot modify the drive letter of your system volume or boot volume".
I also tried Microsoft help in their website but it doesn't work.
Can any one suggest me how to change the drive letters?
