Windows 7: Windows 7 - Administration Privilege (Little Bit Confusing)

Windows 7 - Administration Privilege (Little Bit Confusing)

Hi Guys, good day & I'm sorry if this thread is already created but I don't have much time to look for it.

I'm just confuse!, about the admin privilege that affects my whole computer system, I have a two computer, one is a desktop, and one is a laptop.

When I changed the name of my Local Disk (C) from the default to new one, it doesn't ask a permission to change like the picture below


And the Ownership of my Disk is set to default [TrustedInstaller].

And this is the list of all permission.

As you can see, all of the settings are set to default and nothing changed!!
but when it comes in my laptop, something is wrong


And the Ownership of my Disk in Laptop is set to default [TrustedInstaller] too!!.

And the list of the permission are the same.

As you can see, all the settings from my two computers are the same, the only difference from them are the operating system which my LAPTOP IS WINDOWS 7 STARTER 32bit and my DESKTOP IS WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE 64bit, It matters to me, to know why isn't working the same, please help me! I need to know why??
