Okay. Lemme try to explain this... One day I had an XP and partition not used. Friend bugs me to use Linux, I cave. So now I have XP and Linux. I installed some drivers for XP to recognize Linux's partition. But later on I realize don't find Linux that appeal to be honest as I'm a gamer. So my friend's Uncle has Vista and doesn't like it. I ask if I can have it as I'm a major MS fanboy and want Vista. I install Vista over Linux. All good. So on the Vista partition it's

C: = Vista
D: = XP

A O.K.

But now on XP...

C: = Vista
F: = XP (I want to have it do too, anyway to do that?)
H: = Old Linux partition but now reads as C: too? Useless. Wanna delete.

How can I make F: = D: and get rid of H:? H: is just displaying what C:, the Vista partition does. It was the old Linux partition and I guess didn't get erased when I wiped Linux.


Thanks!

Format H: in Disk Management. You can stay it to store you data or merge with another one (using disk management utilities, for example Disk Director or Partitiom Magic).
Changing letters for boot partitions can lead to os corruption. I think you can make a backup (for example using True Image, it alows to make a backup of one partition or the whole drive) and change the letter with Disk Management, after restore the backup.
