Default partitions

I partitioned my hard drive into multiple partitions. I have windows and a few other programs installed on my C: drive. Now i want to restict all access to that drive so that nothing gets into the important files. Any help or good reading would be much appreciated!

No, it won't allow you to install programs without the C drive

Even linux needs a hard drive. If you have another hard drive (D or what ever for example) you can use that one as your main hdd
