Solved Primary Partition

Post by Xenos on Thu Sep 17, 2009 4:28 pm

hello Big Grin

now i used to know the answer to this but have completely forgotten Let me think Ahahaha

right.... i arnt sure if it has just happened or if it happened when i set up the dual boot.
in XP everything is fine.

But in windows 7 it seems to be using G:\ as my primary drive even though WINDOWS 7 is installed on C:\
so this has become annoying because now when i install software its default is G Bring it on

how do i swap it back? to use C:\ as its default drive, in computer management G: is my primary, BUT so is C: No way!

heres a piccy for ya Cheesy Grin (sparkly

Regedit --> "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \Software \Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion" and change your default. Having 2 primary drive detected is perfectly normal.

I tried that doc but it wouldn't let me.

I have formatted it and put on 7RTM and that has sorted it out

thanks
