When vistape is booted, it will always use d: as drive letter for its cdrom - how do i change that? If a pc has more than a c: drive, its d: will not be available as vistape takes up the d: drive letter.

Thanks!

I would guess that your other HDD partitions will get other drive letters. If the CD-ROM takes D:, it would suggest to me that your VistaPE does not include drivers for your HDD controller, since HDDs typically get drive letters before optical disc drives. The mountvol command will tell you about all attached volumes. If you have Device Manager, you should be able to determine that your HDD controller is not properly installed (just a guess). MountVol will also let you change the drive letter for the ODD, if you really want to.

Vista only uses c: for itself. The cdrom is in its usual position (eg p:).
