Finally re-installing XP Home on my main PC. My boot disk has always been C: and my Data disk D:
However, upon installing XP I note that now my Data disk is C: and Boot disk is C:
Probably doesn't matter, but just annoys me. Computer Management won't allow me to modify either drive letter.
I followed the instructions here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/223188 but this resulted in windows not booting at all :) Stuck on the 'choose login' screen with no login users... So I've re-formatted and are reinstalling now.
Now the original install wasn't done by me, was done by Ascent. I note that the Data drive appears to be on ID0 and the Boot drive is on ID1. Both are sata. Could this possibly be why setup insists on swapping the drive letters on re-install?
