    I created a new partition and installed Windows on it a while back, but when I booted up, it had the letter G and my other partition that I used to store music was drive C..

    I was going to change drive letters around so that my OS was on drive C, but I was wandering if this would mess up any applications I have on the system?

    Thanks

    Josh



    Update:

    I just went on Computer Management -> Disk Management and I saw my three partitions.. It says the following..

    C: - Healthy (System)
    D: - Healthy
    G: - Healthy (Boot)

    But this is what the drives are really used for..

    C: - Music etc
    D: - Old OS (Moving old documents over to new one then removing this partition)
    G: - New OS

    Any ideas?

    I dont think you will be able to change the drive letter for the OS

    That's what I thought, if anybody can confirm this it would be helpful.

    Thanks

    This is a confirmation. I would also suggest not removing your d: or you will not be able to boot to your newly installed OS. If it becomes unpartitioned your g: will become d: and the OS won't boot up correctly.
