For this to work properly, you have to have the drives connected to the motherboard in sequential order. What's happening is Windows is seeing your "D" drive on Interface 0, and the "C" drive on Interface 1, so it assigns the drive letters based on installation and sequence. It annoys the hell out of me too. To combat it, the next time you go to reload, remove your "D" drive from the system's field of vision (just unplug the data connector) and then connect your "C" drive to that interface connection (where "D" just was). Reload the OS to your "C" drive (be sure to format everything - don't just do an install on top of the OS) and then when you're up and running again, reconnect the "D" drive to where "C" was before (so that "C" is on interface 0, and "D" is on interface 1). That should fix it without having to worry about drive letter assignments
