Drives C/D/E/F/G
« on: 08-November-03, 18:33:38 »

I bought a MEGA PC with the these specs;

Intel Pentium 4 2,4B Ghz 533 Mhz
512 Mb 333Mhz memory (Corsair)
WD 80 Gb 7200rpm 8Mb
LG Combo drive 52x24x52x16

The company where I bought this MEGA PC + parts, they build in these parts.

After I had installed Windows XP Pro, I saw that mine Cardreaders were C and D, then mine Combo drive had E and the HardDrive F and G ( I made 2 partitions).

Is this normal or had they made a mistake by the assemblage?

Please let me know if this is normal when you had cardreaders in the PC, this is mine first PC with cardreaders.
I thought that the harddrive always must be the C.

Thanks
Mercy

  • Control panel->administrative tools->disk management

    You can reassing drive letters, but you can't change the boot drive so I don't know how they managed that one.

    Thanks, but that was not the question.

    What I want to know, is it normal that the Harddrive had the F and not he C
    and if it is not normal how to change this, in the bios or had I change cables or
    jumpers on the motherboard?

  • Hi,

    I think Assaf did provide the answer to your question ... these things may happen (so, it can be considered "normal" practice). You may change the drive letters your self (via control panel >> administrative tools - as Assaf said, but then: >> system management (?) - systeembeheer >> disk management -schijfbeheer)

    Hope this helps,

    Hans

  • its not normal i would look at whats on each ide and how the drives are set up and jumpered

    was there a memmory card in the reader when you installed?

    reinstall with main wd drive on ide 0 jumpered as stand alone master ,which is jumperless

    and the cd drive on ide 1 as master

    once windows is up and running then reconnect the card reader

    if this is connected to an ide lead slave it to the cdrom

  • If the machine is working properly (which I assume since T@@N did not mention any specific problem) why not try to reassign the drive letters?

    It appears to be a Windows-thingy to me ... (maybe caused by partitioning?)
