A little background. A server, running Windows 2003R2 (x86), with a RAID5 array, partitioned with 100GB for OS, the rest 2TB+ for data. 100GB is C:, data is D:. All fine.
Recently, due to drive failure, I am forced into re-installing the OS fresh. Of course, I do not want to touch the data partition. I boot from install disk, delete C:, re-create it (it takes C:) and begin install process. Drives get checked, and Windows installer makes some corrections on the data partition (D:). A reboots is forced.
After reboot install runs again, from CD, and now shows data partition as C:, with the rest un-partitioned. Creating a partition for the OS, assigns letter D:. I do not want that, but can't find a way to change it.
