Changing HD letter on boot drive

MY HD is currently labled as H. Long story but it is the only HD currently in the system. I have run into a problem trying to install Nvidia GPU drivers. I can unload them to H but when they try to install they want to install to C and it does not give me a chance to change the install to H. Is there a way to change my drive letter or a work around for the driver install. OS is currently Vista Business 32 bit. Thanks in advance

  1. I don't know about vista, but XP allows you to change the drive letter in disk management. Right-click "my computer" and select manage, then click on disk management in the left pane. If you right-click on your H drive you should see the option to change drive letters.

    I have no idea how it will effect the rest of your installed programs as some registry setting may still have paths to your H drive after changing the drive letter. You should be able to change the drive letter back to H if you run into problems.

    I haven't used nvidia cards in the past 3 years or so. Does their installer have any command line options? If they do, their may be an option to change the install directory.
  2. thanks for the post but I tried that and no go. just ordered a new copy of win 7 from the egg time to upgrade the os

    Have you tried changing the drive letter via diskpart's assign command?
