How do I assign drive letter in Partition Wizard

I want to do file check but its telling me to give each partition a drive letter

When I either right click partition or click partition at top "change letter" is not higlighted.

If I use Label it says it will wipe out anything on that partition which I obviously dont want

can anyone help please?

Hello, you can go to computer management and do it from there.

Click start, type computer management form there click disk management then right click drive you want to change and choose your options.

Hope this helps.

You could always try that approach if P wizard is not helping.

Hi there
If you have no OS then until you format the Drive with NTFS or FAT32 into Windows you can't assign it a letter.

After formatting you can LABEL the partition but when you install the OS it's best to let the OS assign "C" to the install partition.

Once you've booted up you can re-assign letters to the other partitions.

Just create a (preferably) NTFS partition and install your OS.

Cheers
