Having multiple partition,windows Xp installation is set to drive D instead of c.why?

Last Update Date : Mar 21. 2018

If the system boots from the Windows XP Recovery CD when there is more than one partition (For example, drives C and D), the default Windows XP installation drive is set to drive D instead of drive C.


When you first install Windows XP, you are given the option to select a drive. If you select “Yes” and pass the option at this time , D drive can be set as a default drive. Please make sure to change the installation drive to drive C when you install the Windows XP.



In addition, if Windows XP is installed from the Windows XP Recovery CD when a USB HDD is installed, this symptom will occur. You can set to drive D when you install Windows XP.


NOTE: Before performing this procedure, please be aware that you will lose all data on your drive D.
