I have an ASUS laptop with the following according to Disk Management:
- Disk 0: 2.5" 1TB hard drive, one partition is C: and contains Windows 10
- Disk 1: 16GB m.2 SSD, one partition and named D:
I have successfully replaced the SSD with a 500GB m.2 SSD. It is still D: and is fully accessible.
I now want to clean install Windows 10 onto the SSD, and basically use the 1TB just for data. If I do it without removing the 1TB physically out of the computer, will Windows now rename the SSD as C: or is there a way to ensure that the SSD becomes C: with the bootable Windows? (I am not interested or want multi-boot.)
If instead I remove the 1TB drive physically and install Windows onto the SSD, will the SSD now become C: by default?
