Doesn't c: exist in your configuration?

This:
http://www.jrsoftware.org/ishelp/topic_setup_defaultdirname.htm
suggests lazarus.iss and lazarus-cross.iss line 30
DefaultDirName={code:GetDefDir|c:\lazarus}
could be replaced by
DefaultDirName={code:GetDefDir|{sd}\lazarus}

(Haven't tested this though)

In my opinion, installation to the system drive should be a sensible, consistent default.
IIRC, Windows does not force one to have a C: drive...
