I have installed XP Pro as drive E:, on a system that already has DOS (drive C and NT (drive D. I have converted everything over from NT to XP and am satisfied to the point that I am now ready to get rid of NT completely. I would like to delete the NT partition to free the space and modify the XP partition from its current drive ID of E: to D:. I know that drive letters, accessed by XP, can be changed as I have changed my CDROM to drive T:. But what about changing everything else on the partition so that it still works? Path names, Shortcuts, etc. I did this type of operation years ago when I blew away Win 3.1. The easy part was changing the Environment Variables and the Registry. The hard part was modifying all of the program shortcuts. a few on the desktop but mostly on the Start Menu. It took about 10 hours to do all of the work and it was very tedious. In the end there were only two applications that I had to re-install, presumably, because they stored their run-time data in private files. But, in the end, the operation was successful. I don't want to do this again if I can avoid it. Can anyone suggest an easier way? Are there any tools available to automate the process. Surely there is someone else who has, or wants to, do the same thing. Thanks in Advance.
