    So i just did a reformat and installed all updates and drivers before I realized that my windows installation was on my H drive. My memory card reader stole the C-F drive letters from windows lol. To try and fix this, I modified the registry at this location (why did I do this? I'm a n00b):
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\MountedDevices

    The entry was: \DosDevices\H:, and I changed the H to a C. I'm such a n00b, I know. There was obviously nothing important so I didn't back up anything and if i NEED to reformat, I will. But I'd prefer not to install XP/all those drivers again. Any idea on how I can change it back? Any utilities or anything in the recovery console that will fix this?
