The Mysterious Moving Drive

By abailey101 ·
I have an HP Vetra PC with W2000 loaded. Last night the C: drive (boot partition) moved to d: drive (not sure how or why at this point) and now the PC will not load past the login screen. If i do a CTRL ALT Del I can start the task manager and geta dos prompt or load MMC. I have tried to change the drive letter back to C: in disk management but since it is a boot partion it will not allow me to do this. Any suggestions.

As it turned out my counterpart used the PC to install the Hard Drive from his old PC to recover some files. The drive letters did not get reasigned back to the original settings when he disconnected the drive. He had to reconnect the Hard drive then boot and reconfigure the drives
