Tags: New Build Hard Drives Windows XP Systems Last response: November 13, 2009 6:02 PM in Systems Share rob carter November 13, 2009 5:52:08 PM On a new xp home installation, my hard drive is labeled h, not c. Its a new build biotech mobo X2 6000, and new wd640. Neighbor suggested usb's should be disconnected at install as they cause improper drive letter designations. Any suggestions?
