Greetings,

There are two problems I have encountered.

1. I am not seeing the windows logon box when NT starts. No errors occur and
the cursor arrow does appear, but no logon.
This is not a timeout issue because I have left the machine in this state
overnight.

2. Attempting to gain access to the machine to try to address problem 1 (by
as yet undetermined method) I installed a second
copy of windows NT in a separate folder on the same drive. Now the disk layout
is as follows

C: NTFS 15M
D: NTFS 1026M
E: NTFS volume set comprised of 3 partitions (2G 4G and 21G)

The new installation sees the first two partitions as NTFS but sees the last 3
partitions as raw. I tried using ftedit.exe from the
NT resource kit which allows it to see the volume set but not the filesystem.
How can I get the second NT installation to access
drive E as NTFS?


System: Compaq EVO laptop 256M memory

Note: Booting the original install with the /sos flag shows that chkdsk is run
on C,D & E and all are seen as NTFS...for whatever
that is worth


Any help would be much appreciated.

Regards,

Martin
