Changing drive letter in Windows 2000

By bmorris ·
How do you change the primary drive letter in 2000? I have already tried Disk management and it tells me I cannot change the drive letter from E: to C:! When I installed Win2K, I had a new drive jumpered as master with slave and the old hard drivethat was giving me the problem jumpered as slave. I installed Win2K on the new drive where Win2K created the partition and formatted the drive in NTFS. When I could not access the slave drive after loading Win2K, I took the slave drive out, jumperedthe new drive to single drive and rebooted. Win2K still sees the drive as Drive E and I need it to see the drive as Drive C. Any help would be appreciated! thanks!

You can't. Even if you found a way, you would have a scabillion things you would have to change in the registry. Reinstall from scratch.
