Windows 7: Help with changing drive letters in Windows 7

Help with changing drive letters in Windows 7

Hello,
I am recently recovering from a BSOD and I had to start over with a new main hard drive. I am trying to make my second hard drive letter D. The computer made it E. There is not a drive labeled D that I could change the drive letter to something else to free up D. I have followed the guide found here:

And the drive letter I need was still not usable and the registry item I deleted kept coming back. Any help on this matter would be appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you very much for your input but I figured out where I messed up There was a usb drive that somehow claimed letter D in the mess when I put in the new hard drive and installed Windows. Thank you.
