I am using Intel DX58SO Desktop Motherboard in RAID 5 with four SATA 500GB Seagate Barracuda drives. I have installed Windows XP Professional 64-Bit in it. I saw that the default drive for my operating system was set in drive I in RAID. I wanted to change it to drive C but my computer does not allow any changes made in the system disk. Does anybody know how to fix this? Did anyone experience similar problem to this? Please let me know how you fixed it.

What you did is installed the operating system on the hard drive partition I, and therefore it was made the primary hard drive. You will not be able to change the location of the files on that hard drive partition because they are system files and moving them to a new location will affect the operation of the system.

What you will need to do to fix the issue is:

  • Get the copy of the windows installation CD.
  • And then insert it on the DVD drive of your computer.
  • Restart the computer to initialize the installation.
  • And then during the installation process, make sure that you choose to install the operating system on the C: partition, and the format drive I to remove all its contents.
