Default Incorrect drive letter after NLited XP Pro install? - 01-05-2009, 02:10 PM


Just received my Dell Mini 9 this morning with Ubuntu and I'm putting an NLited version of XP Pro on it right now, it appears that the drive letters have been messed up somehow with the Flash Drive getting letter C: and the SSD getting letter D: was wondering if there was any way I could change that?

I used WindowsSetupfromUSB with PEtoUSB and formatted it with the LBA option so I'm wondering if that's what the problem is, if I can't change it I'll try another install without using the LBA option and see what results I get.

I had that problem the first time I used a flash disk to install, but I was coming from Ubuntu. I just reinstalled Windows with my USB Key and it corrected the issue.
