Vista is always on drive C unless you use more then one OS.
Every time I've tried to install vista onto logical drive 1 it's automatically set it as the C: drive. I think it's something that Vista does to be more "user friendly" stupid I think.
Even when you have multiple OSes it does it, I used to put XP x64 on drive 0 and Vista on drive 1 and vista would show drive 1 as being C:.
so this is normal? becuse before reinstall it was on a ceprate partition that i could not see.
And what did you see when you loaded xp x64?
As far as I know Vista always sets itself as drive C even tho you installed it in another drive in the first place.
Yeah, this is normal. It sounds like the last time you installed it was the time that it installed weird.
maybe this link is helpful http://www.multibooters.co.uk/installing.html
XP also seen itself as drive C:, because physically it was.
Like I said, it's just another way they've dumbed down windows trying to idiot-proof it.... you know those people that are like "kernel.dll? I don't know what that is! I'm going to delete it!"
ok just to make sure.
i installed vista in a partetion
the partition was 30gb...so now that is drive c..
the rest of the hdd is now d and my second hdd is e as usual.
so is that normal.
is yes that could really be the reason why i had so mush trouble with vista lastime.
Yep, completely normal.
If it was hiding the partition that it was installed on it would be like trying to run your PC without a HDD to save things to!
i had c last time. but just the windows partition was hidden
well thx for the help guys
i don't see any problem at all , it is normal
thx. hah mast have been wrong the las time i did it.
Yeah, mine does that too. I did get it to install as drive D once, but I've never been able to replicate that.
With multiple Vista installations on one system probably..
hmmm vista is a little odd sometimes
by the way can anyone recomed me a good program to increas partition size. i want to increase the size of c.
im ask about this think before , the best chose i get it is from xfire reply, which is Get a Linux live CD(Ubuntu preferably), Use gparted to resize the partition
I've used Acronis Suite and flawlessly works on vista x64, winxp x64, although not free
ah thx hehe
Try setting a partition on a different disk as a folder on the primary drive, install Vista to that.
I don't know if you still can do it, but the beta builds of Vista and the RTM would let you.
im have rtm. il check it out thanks
