[tex-live] tlpretest: should the installer find older texlive?

On a windows 7 PC in a normal user account I started the
install-tl-advanced.bat at first in a command line where the PATH
variable didn't contain TL15. In the gui I go red entries for
various installation pathes because the default installation
directory was not writable. 

So I stopped the installation and retried in a command line which
does know TL15 to check if the installer would pick up some info
from the older TeXlive. Now every path in the GUI had a default but
curiously all in the wrong partition C:, but my TL15 is in
D:\texlive.  Is this expected behaviour?
