XP Pro welcome screeen

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

Hi my computer 2.4GH XP Pro was working alright. Then i changed the drive
letter of my active partition before it was D: and i changed it to C:.
After then when i reboot my computer it shows BLACK screen of Windows XP
Pro, then it shows blue WELCOME screen of Microsoft Windows. And looks like
it will now reach to my Desktop any time.
But it never reach to my Desktop and stay there at blue Welcome screen
forever.
what could be wrong? I tried to reboot in safe Mode and same thing.

    Just changing the drive letter is just not enough. XP has other settings
    which all point to the original drive D: for the configurations and Desktop.
    You may have to re-install XP in order to fix this. A repair reinstall may
    work.

    I 've also installed Windows 2003 on my computer with xp. I can boot my
    windows 2003 OS. Through that i can see my xp partition and it is still the
    D: drive. when i changed the letter D: to C: using Acronics software it asked
    reboot to make these changes, but i could never able to boot again in to XP.
    But i can boot in my Windows 2003 and i can see my XP partition is still D:
    So why it is not rebooting my system. It didn't change my drive letter.
