  1. E or D? You state both.

    I would expect it to be E (C for primary, D for optical drive).
  2. +1
    That's because Drive A: and B: is reserved for floppies, C: the boot HDD, and any after that assigned as they come. If you have another drive in use (optical, USB, etc) the next available letter will be assigned.
