  1. Hello.
    I renamed my drive letters in the registry of XP. Now, I am unable to boot the machine. It freezes on the blue win xp screen. Is there any way to fix this without a reimage?? Doh!

    Well if you did the recently (within the last week) you can try to do a system recovery. Then you can choose a restore point before you changed your drive letters. It's worth a shot, even if it was a week ago. Boot with the XP disk and hit F8 (I think) to start automated system recovery.

    BTW :wave: :wave Welcome to TechSpot :wave: :wave:
