You should have unplugged your data drive before installing, as I suspect it installed to the first C drive it saw on your system.

Might be best to wait till you get home and sat at the computer, so you can take a screen shot of your disk management.

"7s", have you put two versions on there? Not sure what the issue is, as I would have expected XP to be on C in the first place.

When i Installed the xp 2 years ago. I had two Hard Disks...the one called C: which was the big one and the one called D: which a smaller one. I decided to install Xp on the D: one.
Yesterday I bought Windows 7 ultimate and installed them on the D: one which i formated and cleaned before installing.
Now the D: became C: and i cant see the old C: one...
Thats as simple as i can put it..
Thanks! any help needed!
