ASUS A8V Deluxe MB
Windows XP Home
WD 160 GB HDD - new for OS & Programs
WD 250 GB for storage and backups

I am installing software in a new drive and the drive is an IDE but the storage drive is a SATA. The SATA was formatted for storage, but not an OS and installed prior to installing the OS drive. Windows named the new OS drive G: and now when I try to install Norton AV off the System Works CD, I get error code 1327 Invalid Drive C:\

Micorsoft website says to use Disk Management to change the drive letter, but I think because Windows is installed on that drive, it won't let me change the drive designation.

Any suggestions? Will it help to update the NAV off the website instead of tring to load it from the CD, the use Live Update?

During installation, it should say where it will install to with the option to change the location

Thanks for replying


I did get the option as to which hard drive to install to, but I don't recall getting an option as to what drive letter to call it. Because I had the other drive and peripherals connected, Windows selected the next available drive letter after the peripherals, not C: which should have been open.
