Changing Drive Letters

I just had to reinstall Windows. I have two HD and each has two partitions. When I installed Windows it was put in C, but it put different letters by my other partitions. Is there a way to change them?

Yes there is. Please open Manage by right-clicking on My Computer. In the Computer Management Window that opens click on Disk Management on the left panel.

Now right click on the disk drives at the bottom in the right panel and click on "Change Drive Letter and Paths...." and change the Drive Letter to your liking.

Is it normal when installing Windows 7 that it installs itself on 'C' Drive and moves XP from 'C' Drive to 'D' Drive even though it appeared to be installing on 'D' during installation?
