1.13. Can't log on after adding a hard drive or breaking a mirror

Your system boots, you specify a valid username and password, and you receive messages indicating a logon in process. But then Windows 2000 displays the logon dialog again rather than displaying the desktop. This behavior can occur if the Windows 2000 boot partition drive letter does not match the drive letter assigned during Windows 2000 Setup. This situation can arise in the following circumstances:

  • You install a new drive, which implicitly changes drive order.

  • You change drive order in the BIOS.

  • You break a system/boot mirror and try to boot from the old former shadow drive with the old primary drive missing or unavailable.
