I'm loving the new Boot-to-VHD feature in Win7! But I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts on how to change the drive letter (while booting from a VHD file) of the drive that's hosting the VHD boot file.
I have multiple hard drives/partitions and I'd like the drive letter mappings to be as similar as possible when booting from the physical drive and when booting from a VHD. By default, the physical host drive is showing up as drive D: when booting from the VHD file and I'd like to change it to something like "X:" so the other mappings can be the same in either case. The typical method of changing the drive letter using the Disk Management tool from the control panel doesn't work, I assume because the drive is currently being used (obviously the VHD file I'm booted from is open).
Anyone have any bright ideas on how perhaps I could set up the system to change the drive letter on automatically on the next boot? This isn't a critical need of course, but I thought I'd see if anyone had any ideas. Thanks!
