Ok I got back into windows. Now it rearranged my drive letters.
I changed them back except for one. Which is my swap file partition. Let me step back for a second to explain my layout

20 gig HDD
Partions as followed
c:\WinXP 4 gb
e:\Programs 15 gb
f:\swapfile 1 gb

4 Gig HDD

Nows its


ok when I went to change drive letters I change programs to E:\ and swap to H:\

So once the change in letters where made. I wanted to change the swap file back to f:\ But F:\ isn't showing up. So I went into where you set the swapfile the PROGRAMS files showing up as E:\ and F:\

I would like them back to they were before my not being able to boot into windows ordeal. Programs in the registry will be looking for E:\ not F:\

What your gonna have to do is goin into your control panel and open up computer management and then use the disk management tools to change the letters and such. I vaguely remember their being an option to swap drive letters and it will change the drive letter instances in the registry for you, i'm not 100% sure but give it a look see and lemme know ifya have any trouble

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
