hey guys.. im going to change the drive letter of my boot drive on windows xp using the method detailed in this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/223188

but to make it work im going to have to change every instance of the string F:\ in the registry to C:\

so im wondering if anyone knows of a registry editor or utility that i can do this with. if not i can hack something together using C#.

This is a really, really bad idea. There is so much out there that assumes C: is the primary drive. And no, you can't reliably fix paths in the registry in an automated fashion like you're thinking.

Why are you changing it?

When you install Windows XP two times on the same hard drive, the second system will not have C: as the default drive letter. But it's possible to have both systems using C: at the same time.
