Re: NT4 - Disk Read Error after partitioning rest of disk

This happen sometimes. If you have Compaq system configuration utility, and you create another partition, NT changes the drive letter and the boot.ini become invalid. Mostly, it does not come up with this kind of error message, but I see that happen alot.
The resolution is to create a fault tolerace boot diskette and modify the boot.ini by moving the drive where winnt is installed by 1 letter up.
Thank You.
