    Hello, I'm have an issue with partitions and multiple windows installations.

    I've gotten really fed up with my old Windows installation - it was getting slow.. after maybe 3 years of usage.

    Before, I had 1 partition for windows and documents and everything. However, I did something weird, I shrunk the partition to a small 30 gb (hdd is 80), and installed another Windows on a new partition, so I could move my stuff from the old installation, then delete the old one.

    It worked fine - I just have one small problem - Computer Managment tells me that C:/ (original partition) is my "system", yet D:/ (new partition) is my 'boot'.

    I'm wondering if this'll cause any problems in the future, and what it actually means.

    Thanks in advance.

    It won't affect you, you just have to watch when installing programs as many will default to "C" drive position and you would wantt o change those.
