Hi,
Just installed a new HDD for the first time. I have tried to install adawre se and it keeps telling me:

There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive\device\hard disk1\DR2. It gives me the option to cancel, try again or continue. Which ever I press it does othing and I have to press CNTRL ALT DEL to switch the programme off.
This also happens when my system boots and it refers to AVG.exe although it allows my to press continue and the system boots.


Like a fool I was so chuffed when I installed my first HDD on my own and formatted it (all be it with the windoxs XP disk) but it is now causing all sorts of problems. Oh well at least i am learning something I guess

It is the only HDD installed and it is a new one that I have installed XP onto. It's a SATA 200GB drive. Not sure if this helps or I am just jibering but one stange thing that happened when I installed it and installed XP...what i expected to be the C:\ drive is the G:\ drive

what we need to do is either change the drive letter to c:\ or cleanup the registry so instead of c:\ it points to g:\

Thanks for the reply. Which is the best option? If I chnage the drive name to C: then will it affect any other programs? Secondly, I how do I go about either process?

Cheers

An interesting discussion is here: http://groups.google...071c6b5201a0966

Why do I know this? Because the same thing happened to me on my home's desktop when I replaced the HD...I haven't had any problem with the drive being E: rather than C: though...everything seems to work fine.

But I believe you CANNOT change the name of the hard drive at this point unfortunately without reinstalling the OS.

Good luck.
