|I have a system with a W2K system installed on C: (system boot) with D: (programs & data) and E: (swap) partitions.|
I have setup a dual boot system with a second W2K on a new hard disk with drive letter L: which I now want to update to XP.
However, when I get to the partition selection of the XP setup, the L: drive is bumped up to D: and the D: and E: are moved down to E: and F:
If I was to proceed, I fear the system installed on C: wont find programs previously on D:, since that drive would then be named E:
Reinstalling the system or software on drive C: after XP setup is not an option since it runs a rather special proprietary commercial software package and would involve high and unnecessary costs.
Is there any way to make XP setup avoid relabelling drives on setup?
