    Warning Modify the registry at your own risk.
    1. Restart to WinRE, and then press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC to display Task Manager.
    2. Click File, and then click New Task (Run…).
    3. Type regedit, and then click OK.
    4. Locate the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\MountedDevices
    5. Locate the DosDevices drive letter registry values. These values resemble the following value: \DosDevices\

    1. Locate the drive letter that you want to change.
    2. Right-click the registry value, and then click Rename.
    3. Change the name of the registry value to the original correct drive letter. Do not change the value itself.

      Note To do this, you must know how the drive letters have been interchanged.
    4. Restart the computer.

      Appears to be more or less a copy/paste of http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947288

      Sheriden, please explain your problem more clearly to ensure this IS a valid fix

      Raj, please follow normal professional standards and acknowledge sources, don't just copy/paste

          i'll try to be more clearly
          1.i've crated a disk drive on my sotrage unit
          2.i've assginged the disk a latter (D)
          3.i can see the drive with the currect latter (when i add it manually form the disk managment).
          4.after i restart the drive (D) the drive appers in the disk managment without a latter assgined.

            OK, so to confirm:
            Server 2008 is on a blade with a local OS (C: ) drive
            You connect to a drive as D: -- this appears OK when you connect first
            When you reboot, D: has vanished but the drive appears without a letter assigned

            Is this correct?
            Is it 2008 or 2008 R2?
            What is the make/model of blade?
            Is D a local (on blade) or SAN drive?

                Re: Server 2008 Dynamic Drive

                What sort of SAN (make/model) is it and how do you connect? (iSCSI or Fibrechannel)?

                    Re: Server 2008 Dynamic Drive

                    ???
                    Are the SAS drives on a SAN or are they on the blade?

                    I'm getting confused here....

                      Those are your drives not the connection.

                      What type of SAN do you use???
