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
d:\games

Nows its

C:\WinXP
f:\programs
e:\swapfiles

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
