    Using the Acronis Boot CD, I restored an image. The image was orginally drive letter C. Rebooted from the HD and now the drive is D. C is not assigned to anything. How can I prevent this from happening? The Restore Image process did not give me an option to assign a drive letter.

    I don't have the answer regarding how to prevent incorrect drive letter assignments, but it's easy to fix after the fact. Just go to control panel -> administrative tools -> computer management -> storage -> disc management(local). Right click on the partition of interest and select change drive letter.

    Nope, you can not do that. It says "Can not modify drive letter of system or boot volume.

    Other thoughts are: Make sure the target drive is at the end of the cable (if IDE). Try removing the drive that the TI boot disc considers to be the C: drive.
    Sounds like you're about to get a better answer. Tech support lives! Curious if TI has a software answer.

    Drive letter C never gets assigned. If I plug in a USB drive, guess what? The USB will get assigned the letter C. I will email tech support as instructed.

    Tnx
