drive letters

I have a machine that has HD, CD rom 3 card readers. I reloaded the OS and now drive C is drive F. Is there a way to make the active boot partition back to C. I have no problem changing drive letters in the Drive manager for all drives EXCEPT the active partition Drive.

Question:  Why do you want a potentially unstable system?

The first paragraph of the selected answer reads (extra formatting by me):
For the most part, this is not recommended, especially if the drive letter is the same as when Windows was installed. The only time that you may want to do this is when the drive letters get changed without any user intervention. This may happen when you break a mirror volume or there is a drive configuration change. This should be a rare occurrence and you should change the drive letters back to match the initial installation.
As has been noted ... there is no "stable" way to change the drive letter.  Chances are, by using that method/hack, you'll get everything loaded on it and a few weeks (or days or months) into using it, you'll have serious problems and you'll have to reinstall anyway.  Why not just do it now - especially after having just reinstalled - there's not much invested in it to lose.  Just my two cents.
