Error 1327 invalid drive can be triggered on a Windows computer when installing software that refers to a nonexistent drive, or when a computer attempts to reference the home drive’s default “H” drive when Windows Enterprise is installed. If the “H” drive is neither accessible nor installed on the computer, the software being installed would be looking for operating system components that are not in an expected location, therefore the error is triggered. Unfortunately, error 1327 cannot be corrected by disabling the non-existent drive via the computer’s Control Panel and requires manual intervention to be corrected.
