Another HP Pavillion Horror Story,,,
I agree with MZ,, when using the Restore Cd's ,, you are not asked for a key,, I know the process from my old pavillion that now sits in a closet due to the fact that the machine will only run correctly with THEIR restore CD's,,, further ,, asking anything from HP will Incur $$$$,, been down that road too,,, even though with the purchase of your PC you bought a License, try expressing that to the HP office and then have them send a Disk,,, you have to be tenacious!!
As for the Drive letters: Start >Control Panel > Administrative tools > Storage >Disk Management
or if you have admin tools on the ALL Programs List follow from there,,,
Once in Disk Management, on the right side, lower pane, you will see the drives attached to your PC,, this is a bit of a backwards process,, so bear with me here,,
In order to get the drive letter that you wish with the proper drive,, you must FIRST change the letter on the Incorrect Drive (the letter You want) to a Letter further down in the Alphabet,, this will "free" the letter up for use,
to change the letters, left click on the drive to choose it, then RIGHT click on it,,first option is change drive letter and paths,, click on that ,, and follow the logic,,
Aside from that ,, Good luck with HP,, I hope you receive better service,,
On the Adobe,, it has an agent that goes to the internet to check for Updates , it does this everytime you logon, and then when you access it will notify you of updates and ask if you wish to retreive them,,
