Sorry it was unintentional it was my first post you may delete my untire post


How does one unintentionally write something down? I always thought it took conscious effort.
Anyway, we are here to help, if you still want it?

"What happened and how can I re assign the letter C: to the System Hard drive ? "
Within any practical meaning of the term... you simply cannot. Setup has embedded the drive letter H: thoroughly into the registry, into many, many keys and values.
Reinstall with those "slot drives" empty, or disconnected.
