Wrong drive selected as PrimaryVolume

I am creating an InstallShield setup that requires that the main installation directory be the root of the main hard drive. I have the install directory set to PrimaryVolume in the InstallShield project. The setup works fine if I only have one hard disc installed but if there is more than one disc it does not choose the C: drive as the primary volume. It will choose the next highest drive letter, typically D or E. I am testing the setup on Windows 7 Pro, 32 bit OS. I have confirmed in the windows disk manager that Drive C: is the primray hard drive. InstallShield version is 2012 Professional. Any suggestions as to what I might be doing wrong?
