I didn't know that it normally puts the optical drive after the system drive. That at least partially explains it. As they are connected as I said in Darician's reply.
I am afraid of manually changing drive letters, like I said, I don't think Windows 7 likes me and is waiting for me to do something for it to fault on. At least now I have a fully running system and its two predecessor's System Images by Macrium. I believe I can get back to hear with a rather lengthy but relatively easy System Image Restore. So far the System Restores have been of no help. K SERA SERA!
Thanks for replying.
