Appy,

You would need to replace it with whatever your DVD drive letter is if that is not it.

It looks like you may need to do a Custom install then. If the old installation is still intact, then a copy of it will be placed in the C:\Windows.old folder during the new installation. After the installation is complete, you can copy any files you want back from the previous installation in the C:\Windows.old folder back into the new installation. You will still need to reinstall all of your drivers and programs though.
