Operating System Version: XP Home SP1
Problem Application Name & Version: Windows XP Home SP1
Problem Hardware Make & Model: self-built (shouldn't matter)
Error Messages: none

Ok... well, I uprgraded windows 98 to XP and during the process, my C: drive got changed to D:

Now, when ever I want to open up an old program, it can never find it because it is wanting to see C: to access the files from.  Unfortunately, there is no C:

How can I get my computer to switch D: to appear and boot as C:?

Are you wanting to try to change the boot partition from D: back to C:

IIRC, Windows 2000 and XP will not allow you to do this on the boot drive (ANy other drive may be allowed. And for good reason. When your operating system boots, it needs to be pointed to where the system files are. If you now label Drive D: as Drive C: , Windows will not know where to find the operating system files and it will not boot.
