Do you mean boot drive letter? Meaning, the OS is installed on a partition with X as the drive letter?

A little more information would be useful:

Which version of windows are you running.

Is the default drive (as you refer to it) the one with the actual operating system installed on it?

Windows 10 and drive c has the operation system but it always loads drive x

I keep reading your posts and I can't help but feel you're in slightly over your head. You never provide any context, so I don't know if you're headed towards the shore or out to sea.

Case in point, I suspect you're in a WinPE environment (aka booting off of the Win10 install disk), and you've noticed the Command Prompt opens to the X: drive. Instead of asking why this happens, how to work around it, or what information you need to gather, you've assumed something's gone wrong and want to mount the PE environment to C:.

Which is something you can't do.

You'll have a job to do that without re-installing the system because Windows will not let you touch the system drive while windows is running. It could be risky attempting anything like that without re-install.

Just for info - to avoid future confusion:
It's a drive (rather than driver).
It's operating system (rather than operation system).

Sometime please amend your spec to show that you have Windows 10.
