"Userinit.exe - No Disk" message on logo

By damian248 ·
On a Win NT 4 Workstation box w/ SP6a, I'm getting "WinLogon.exe - No Disk 'There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive A:'" and "userinit.exe - No Disk 'There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive A:'" errors upon logon. This occurs using any user account. Technet suggestions for the WinLogon.EXE error message were no help; none exist for the userinit.EXE. According to the user, no changes were made to the machine, i.e. opened email attachments, installed or removed apps, etc. A virus scan w/ the latest definitions turned up nothing. After the scan, I upgraded the Service Pack from 5 to 6a, w/ no remedy. The only thing that occured slightly out of the ordinary was a frozen Outlook '97, which was killed using Task Manager. On the reboot, the error messages appeared. They can be bypassed by inserting a floppy in the a: drive or clicking ignore from the menu of <Abort><Retry><Ignore>.

If your system has a bootable CDROM, try disabling it. Also make sure that the background image is not on a floppy. For more info about the bootable cdrom stuff check out this URL:

Good Luck!

If you receive:

Error: SAS Window: Winlogon.exe
There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive A:

you have your wallpaper set to a floppy drive. Edit:

HKEY_Current_User\Control Panel\Desktop\Wallpaper

and setit to a location on your hard drive.

I hope that helps.

Thanks
