Progress is my least important product.
1. I compared the HKLM\System\Disk keys for all 3 properly behaving OS. For
some reason, the Disk key differs in the Mishaving OS.
2. I then applied the workaround frm KB article 836662. Situation worse
thgan first thought.
Not only was S duplicating P, in the MountedDevices key there was a missing
N and a non-used T.
I deleted the entries for S and T, rebooted and everything looked OK, But my
glee was shortlived, I booted again and this time th eduplicate S
re-appearded and N and O were missing in the Mounted DEvices key, tho
present in My Computer.
3. So, what the heck, I imported the Disk key from one of the other OS.
Rebooted. THis time, as I recall, the MountedDEvices key did not have the
duplicate S, but N and O were missing in the MountedDEvices key, yet My
Computer displays the duplicate S, as well as the missing N and O.
So, this issue is a lot deeper than as described in the KB article.
The problem appears to occur only in the Win 2000 that was installed ove
Guess I just gotta live with it.
