I have a new'ish PC with Vista 32.
The main drive(s) is two 250Gb drive configured as one 500Gb RAID drive, which was identified as the C drive and included the windows install.
When an additional drive was installed the computer of its own volition labeled it the B drive.
The computer now fails to boot up windows and says it cannot find the windows installation.
I have determined that the computer seems to have renamed the previous B drive as the C drive and the previous C drive as the D drive. (All my previous data seems to be there and intact from what I can tell)
Could this be why the computer cant find the windows as it is now looking in the wrong place...
I have read that computers 'reserve' the A and B drive designations for floppy drives. Did the computer 'realize' that it had incorrectly designated a hard drive as B and in correcting this screwed things up?
How can I correct this? I do want to avoid a fresh install as all my data seems to be intact and it is just a case of a shifted drive designation.
