Windows is already C:

Are you saying you want to put windows onto a completely different hard drive ?

You can`t just shift windows onto another drive. It has to be installed on it or imaged to it.

Windows system files can never be moved anywhere . Drive "C:\" stands for windows . If your problem is drive space you can adjust it instead . If you want to, use this Partition Wizard - HE
