i've looked at many posts on this subject and i'm a bit confused. i'm replacing an old drive (currently C) that's connected to the ide controller on my motherboard with a new one (currently K) that's connected via a pci card. i've cloned c to k. if i simply disconnect c and reboot, will k now be seen as c without actually reassigning the letter (k to c)? if not, i understand that the Ultimate Boot CD has a facility (Saving Partiton) that will rename drives. but this is also a registry editor. since my clone of c still has pointers referring to c and not k, i'm wondering if i'll run into problems if i try using saving partition-there's no need to change anything in the registry, right? it would be nice to use my DD10 boot cd to change drive names, but i can only get it to load the safe mode version. i'm waiting on Acronis to get back to me. in the meantime I thought i'd try the ubcd if that's feasible. any suggestions/ideas?
