No, you can't not change the drive. By default all OS are installed on C:\, independent if the installation programm show you another letter in the installation process.

"alot of things in the partition of windows xp i cant access whiles using windows 7"
From that I assume you can see the XP partition, to access your data files in XP you may need to take ownership as administrator, programs installed on XP can not be accessed and must be reinstalled in W7.

Since you have Windows 7, have you tried the XP virtualization tool?

As imapc mentioned above, go here to download Microsoft's Virtual PC and the installer for Windows XP Mode.

Only in very rare cases should anyone actually NEED to dual boot 7 and XP.

yes i know i just wanted to try windows 7 but now i think its complicated

Sir - I believe you are making it more complicated than it needs to be. You are running two OSs - Each of these will name itself 'C', because that is the default. This harms nothing, and is merely a function of which one you happen to be using at the time.


If you want to access the XP drive from 7, right click it and take ownership in it's properties.

Done

(1) In XP - Mark the drive as shareable

(2) In 7 - Take ownership.
