  • Partitions on XP wrong way around

    I have two 500 GB disks in RAID0 with two partitions:

    C: 100 GB
    D: 900 GB

    I had to re-install the OS so I deleted the C-partition using the WinXP CD and recreated it. When I did this, what used to be my D partition is now listed as the C-partition (in the XP CD setup) and what used to be the C-partition is now listed as my D-partition, ie. the partitions are swapped.

    I tried to install XP to the 100 GB partition which it did, but it placed the boot files on the 900 GB partition. I do not want this setup. There does not seem to be a way to fix this other than removing both the C & D partitions and recreating the C first then D.


    Is there anyway I can swap them back so that i can re-install XP on the 100 GB partition without blowing away the D-partition?

    Blow it away and start again.
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

      Thought so- thanks for backing that thought up.
