I Have a desktop that I installed a 160GB Hard Drive in, and I installed Windows XP Home Edition on it. It made 2 drives for some reason and It always wants to read out of Drive C: and E:, always the E: drive witch only has 1.99GB and C: has 149GB. Is there anyway to make Drive C: the master. Because everytime I try to install or download something and doesn't give you the option to pick a drive it always chooses drive E: and NOT C: This is a New Western Digital Hard Drive. And I only have 1 Hard Drive in this machine.

Re: DeskTop Hard Drive TroubleShoot
If you attached the new hdisk as an addition then you just have to change jumper settings of your hdisk. your old hdisk you should change jumper to slave then the new one to master. you will see that jumpers at the rear end of the hdisks. check the labels of the disk so you know how to set the jumpers because that depends on what the brand is. can you tell me if you are using a generic mother board or brnaded PC.

Due to Windows XP system restarting there's a possibility that you Hard Disk Partition has been remove. This partition called NTFS or FAT32. Troubleshooting your Windows or repair are necessary you have Bootable XP Disc "Home Edition or Professional Edition". If you backup your files into two partition like Drive C or Drive D, possible to recover from Drive D but Drive C i think not. Reformat the Drive C or put Windows System.
Home Edition is already a version of XP. XP was released in Home and Professional versions. You can find out for sure what version of software you have by right-clicking on the desktop icon for "My Computer" (or on the "My Computer" entry on the Start Menu if the icon is not on your desktop), then clicking on "Properties" from the popup menu.
If you want to upgrade from XP Home to XP Professional, you can do that with the appropriate upgrade CD. But unless you are networking in an office setting, there really are no features in Pro that you don't have in Home.
