@Starboy0511 

The terms you are using are confusing.  The c: "drive" (not "driver") is lettered that way automatically because it is the OS drive when you boot into Windows.  This "drive" is actually a "volume" and they are lettered automatically.

 

When folks refer to drive zero, they are referring to the physical drives, not the volumes.  So, if you have two physical drives in your laptop, the first will be zero, the second "one".

 

The term "driver" has nothing to do with the logical drives (volumes) or the physical drives; instead, it is software that allows the OS to talk to hardware, in this case, your hard drive. 

 

So, why are you trying to install Windows?
