A reformat is your only option. What is this everything you mention? The more info you give us the better we can help answer your question. By that I mean there might be another way to fix it if you tell us what is giving you the problems with the system drive not being C:
medo145 said:with XP you can go to run and type diskmgmt.msc and you can make the partition active from there
medo145 said:could he put his drive as a slave into another computer that has a OS on it and then go to diskmanagement and change it to active then put the drive back into his own and then boot it as active without all the other ide components then restart and plug the rest in
Warning Do not use the procedure that is described in this article to change a drive on a computer where the drive letter has not changed. If you do so, you may not be able to start your operating system. Follow the procedure that is described in this article only to recover from a drive letter change, not to change an existing computer drive to something else. Back up your registry keys before you make this change.
