Hey all,

I have a request to installl Server 2003 x64 Enterprise but do it on a D: drive (so no C: drive). It seems simple enough but how do I do it? I tried creating a partition ahead of time as D: but the WIndows CD assigns C: during setup. Thanks. Not sure if this matters but this will be a VM (XEN)...

I think that WIndows server always requires a C: drive, if for nothing else, then for the boot information.

So create a small C: drive 100 MB , and another partition for D:

Then install windows into the 2nd partition.

I hope this helps !
