Ok, ya try SIW2's suggestion. Just FYI, it can be done from within windows as well via diskpart.

Open an elevated cmd prompt
Run diskpart
In diskpart run> list volume
In diskpart run>select partition (x)
In your case, X is P:
Then in diskpart run> inactive

Refresh your disk management screento ensure the correct partition was changed.

That seemed to work except for one thing. The P drive is still the system drive. Do you have anything for that?

Thanks again

Can I use an elevated command prompt to make the c drive the system drive?

BTW did my thread get moved into "Hardware & Devices" or did I accidentally start this thread in here?

Pilotwings,

In Windows OS, system partition is the one where the boot files are located. In your case that is P: as of now so its normal. And as for making C: drive, the system drive, that is about shifting the mbr to C: drive. I have already described the methodology in my previous posts.

Okay. It looks like all I had to do after all that was restart. Now everything looks fine.

Thanks to everyone who helped me.
