Driver Letter change Issues

I have a new 2012 Windows server and are application manufacturer said we need to change our "E" drive to "D".  Most cases this will not be a issue but after a reboot server does not come up.  The error we would receive on a reboot was 0xc00002e2.  Completely baffles me.  A simple drive letter change should be easy, there should be now issue.  Am I over looking something.

It should be not an issue if the system is not booting from E: drive.
What do you have on E: partition? Are there any boot files form Windows?

What is on your E drive? Is this a domain controller?
If you had anything that was used or referenced by the operating system on your E: drive.  Then those dependencies need to be either; Removed and reinstalled after the drive letter is changed; or, You need to manually update their registry location(s) and configuration file(s) indicating that they are on a different drive.

The easiest is obviously going to be the removal and reinstallation of these dependencies.

E drive is just a data partition, it has no OS files on it.  And yes this is a DC
I should point out (for clarification), the the removal occurs before the drive letter change.  Then you would reinstall after the drive letter change.
