Unfortunately you cannot rename the system drive. The system drive is the drive with windows installed on it. The only way to fix this is to first disconnect the old hard drive (just unplugging the power to the drive will do the trick) and then reformat and reinstall windows onto the new drive again. Make sure you don't have any USB drives or USB card readers plugged in either.
