No it doesn't.

Edit: by the way i should mention here, windows dunno why has a habit of screwing around with my drive letters after a reinstall. i have just reinstalled it a couple of days ago (the first time since i got this system) and it had modified my drive letters i really don't know why so i had changed them to the original order since they were breaking a few things apart from the change perception after being used to the order for years.

Everything looks to be in order, are all the contents of the partitions/drives present?

I don't have a clue why it would break the drive letters, creating the SysResv shouldn't have any issue with that though.

Yeah all contents are present and accessible. this drive letter issue also used to happen back when i was on xp (and on a different computer)...maybe cause of many partitions or cause it might've arranged them in alphabetical order according to the labels during the install?

If that's what you are referring to, it will do that all by its lonesome.
