But I did install Windows on that partition and it got "C:"...
Before the change it was always getting "G:".

(of course if you plan to re-install on the same disk and partition/volume, then it's OK, the effect will be only to change letter)
but I understood that the idea was to use this approach to install on "other" devices.
In any case in this particular case
, that partition is FIRST one (and most probably also Primary and Active and on First disk ).
If this is the case, you only have to delete migrate.inf alltogether, as (without a migrate.inf) drive lettering will be automatic and first active primary partition on first disk gets C: automatically.
If you prefer migrate.inf is a tool originally intended to migrate
"current" drive letter and without it the drive lettering wil be automatic, whilst the idea in the mentioned threads is to "abuse" of it by using it to assign arbitrary letters.
If you have a "unusual" drive letter and you want to make it "normal" in the new install (on same disk and partition/volume) you remove the setting forcing the "unusual" letter, as opposed to force a "normal" drive letter (i.e. the same that would be assigned without the "forcing"); the idea of abusing of migrate .inf is to have as a result an "unusual" drive letter, not the "normal" or "default" one.
Instead of forcing normality, you remove the forcing....
I hope that this clears the point I was trying to make
