    It should not matter, if it did disk management wouldn't let you change it. for example, it won't let you change the drive letter of the drive or partition Windows is installed to. I've seen similar posts with the same issue and removing the drive letter for system reserved fixed it.

    Thanks everybody. How it got assigned a letter I don't know.

    NOTE - It did the trick and the computer boots.

    Most likely a third party piece of software.

    Yes it would. Windows ignores the drive letter assignment for those partitions.
