I have just figured it out.  I installed a 40 gig Hard drive. It sees as C drive.  The hard drive I would like to keep is too big.  It is 500 GIG.  Bios does not see it as local hard drive. I will check and see if I can update the BIOS. It may help.

You might be able to change this in the BIOS.

I have upgraded the BiOS.  It still shows as "I" and not "C".

I do not see anything that I can change in the bios setup.

It is ok. Is this drive system or data drive?

Normally if you install Windows with SD card connected then the first free drive letter which is C: is taken by card reader slot which emulates physical HDD.
Thus when you connect real HDD it gets the first free drive letter which in your case was I:
If the drive of 500GB is not system then you can simply right click on SD card (C: drive letter) and select Change Drive Letters and Paths.
There select remove. Then do the same on 500GB drive.
After that assign the C: drive letter to 500GB.
But if your 500GB drive is system drive then you can do nothing. Just disconnect the Card Reader and reinstall Windows. After that reconnect Card Reader. All will be ok.
