Unable to log into Windows XP Pro after changing system drive letter
Posted on 2006-05-09
I am running Windows XP Professional SP 2. When I originally installed XP, the drive letter assigned to the hard drive was F. Today, I came across instructions to change the drive letter by modifying HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\MountedDevices only. After restarting the system, I get the login splash screen but no listing of login accounts.
I do not have network access to that computer. But I can boot using the installation disk and get into the recovery console. I have tried FIXMBR, but that has not solved the problem. Is there a way to modify the registry through the recovery console?
