Yes, that is basically true, and something I intended to mention. As far as the Start Menu shortcuts go, you will have to go to the Properties of most of them and redirect the shortcut back to C:\Program Files. It's not too big of a deal since there are only a few shortcuts on a fresh install, and all you really have to do is change the 'D' back to a 'C.' When you think about it though, having to do that would take less time than to browse to the new installation directory during the install of every new program.ElementalDragon said:Muzikool, about that registry tweak. If i remember correctly, i tried using what i believe was that exact same tweak, and after i made the changes, it assumed that the designated folder was ALSO where the already installed programs are, which means you would have a bit more work ahead of you afterwards. Not 100% sure, but i'd check up on that.
It seems as if you've done everything correctly. Wish I could give you "The Answer," but I just don't know why you can't change that number.Capricorn said:Thanks Muzikool, what I did was to choose to delete the existing partition, the option then was to create a new partition, by pressing 'C' on my keyboard. This brought up the page saying to choose a partition size between 8mb minimum, to a highlighted maximum, which was the same size as my existing drive. It looked at that stage as if all I needed to do was to delete the highlighted figure, and enter a new figure showing the size of the partition I wanted to create. But the highlighted figure would not delete, and I couldn't enter the figure I wanted. So I could only return to the previous page, which gave me the option to format and install Windows.
Glad all is going well so far.Capricorn said:Right, I've got around the problem by using a Partition Program. I have created 3 partitions. I have a small one, on which I have installed the XP, on the second one I have installed the programs, and the third one I am using for downloads.
Now I have one worry. What happens to the Programs if I reinstall XP?
