C: is named E: by default

By jhackett ·
I have installed Windows 2000 PRO on a HP BRIO. I have only one drive (seagate)in system. The HDD jumper settings are set to Master-Single. It works fine just labels drive incorrectly

However Windows 2000 sees this drive as the E: drive, even tho the bios reports it as the Primary master. Any ideas whats up here?

Run disk administrator from the admin tools menu and set the drive letters to what you want, winNT and 2000 to the best of my knowledge will let you set it to whatver you want.

goto control panel, administrative tools and open disk management. your drive resources will be displayed here.(i'm not 100% sure but if it was a network oriented installation c:& d: get allocated as a share with a $ sign)anyway you can change the drive letter here to pretty much anything from c: to Z: hope this helps you out.
