I am having this same issue, but have a related question
Please forgive me for intruding on this thread, but I am having this same issue. While I realize that it is probably just easier to reinstall windows, I have a question first. During installation of Windows XP, I don't remember it asking for a drive letter. I do have 2 hard drives (one 80GB, which should be the system drive and one 60GB). I selected the 80GB for installation of Windows, but I don't ever remember anything about selecting a drive letter. I am asking about this because I would hate to waste my time reinstalling Windows, only to find out that the system drive was assigned something other than C again. Tommy Boy said to make sure that it's C this time, but I'm not sure how to do this.
Also, I just replaced my system hard drive and when a new one was sent, it was Ultra ATA. While I am certain that the new cable is installed correctly (blue-system, black-master, grey-slave) I am wondering fif my jumper settings caused this issue (or whether the jumper settings are irrelevant when using the 80 pin cable for Ultra ATA). If it helps, right now my system volume is F, the slave drive is D, my DVD is E and my CD-RW is G.
Thanks in advance for your response.
