Windows 7: How to change the drive letter in a dual boot computer

Installed the language,but Recovery Options are still in English,the same as "Starting Windows" and Advanced Boot Options for Windows 7.How can I change them? I have used bcdedit /set {current} locale el-GR and bcdboot c:\windows /l el-GR but don't work for these.The only thing they do is change the select OS screen language to Greek.

I tried repeatedly to troubleshoot the Greek installer but my repeated questions were ignored. Otherwise you would have a working Greek installer. I'm not asking a fourth tiime.

Well,let me answer to some of your questions:
1) I can't remember where I got this ISO and what I did to make it,because I burned the DVD in 2009-2010.
2)The Pro license is a COA sticker and Ultimate is a retail copy.
3)Greek language works,but only in the other parts of the OS.The parts mentioned are in English.
Did that help you understand?

What I'm trying to understand is exactly why you said it's non-bootable. Was it originally a bootable disk that won't boot now? Have you checked the disk under a bright light for scratches or dirt to wash off? Do you still have the ISO file you burned it from?

One thing you can try that sometimes works if its a disk that once booted but won't now after trying it in several machines to compare: extract the ISO image file using ImgBurn and burn another disk at 4x speed.

Now let's go back to the start: You said you ran the files from within the OS to install to a new partition. Did you run the Greek ISO files? How were they mounted. Most important: Did you run the Setup .exe file as Administrator from the Sources folder? This will sometimes allow it to install to C. Was that the only problem with installing from the OS?

Installing a language pack does not change everything to another language.

Just follow Greg`s instructions to fix your Greek Windows 7 installer, it`s so easy.

Why did you buy an English version of Ultimate ?

You keep saying you have a Greek iso ? What do you mean exactly ?

Didn`t think windows came in Greek, did it ?

Do you have the iso file saved on the computer ?

Or do you have the Greek Windows 7 Install DVD ?

These are 2 separate things, please clarify.

Answers:
1)It's a Digital River ISO,which is UEFI bootable.
2)I created an ISO of the unbootable Greek DVD.
3)I don't have the original ISO,because my old computer was stolen.
4)The original DVD was lost.

Did you clean the DVD, try booting it in multiple PC's to confirm whether it's a problem with the DVD or with the PC?

Did you extract the ISO image file using ImgBurn, burn the ISO you extracted to a fresh DVD with ImgBurn at 4x speed?

The DVD is clean.I have tried using it in my computer(unbootable),VMware with BIOS (unbootable) and VMware with UEFI (unbootable).Maybe I did something wrong while burning the DVD.I'm sure I will have to select the bootable file (etfsboot.com) and set its sectors to 8.I haven't burned a new one yet.

WHere did you get the ISO? Confirm it's HASH and burn a new DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed.

This is explained at Step 1 of Clean Reinstall Windows 7

Downloaded HashTab and it shows a tick on the ISO with SHA1.So,I don't think anything was added in the ISO. However, I would like to ask some questions that are not related to this topic:
1)What shall I do to have great sound (no distortions, crackles, stops) in a Windows Vista (x86 and x64) VM with VMware (Workstation 11)?
2) What shall I do to get Aero in Virtual PC?
In case you want to ask again, I haven't made the new DVD yet (haven't found my DVD case).
