I am sure this must be addressed before but could not find anything in the forum.

Running a RAID I mirror on an XP i386 O/S platform - Boot Disks
RAID was broken, would not copy, rebuild etc.
Event produced two boot disk C;\ and D:\
Booting attempted from either produces a 'mixed conflicting set of ENVIRONMENT variables'

Now my %SystemRoot% is pointing to D:\
So %HOMEDRIVE% point to D:\, %ComSpec% point to D:\WINNT\system32>
How can I correct this such that %SystemRoot% points to C:\ ?

Rebuild/restablish the RAID...do a repair install on one hard drive while the other has been temporarily disconnected.

Depends on what your intent is, IMO.

Is this occuring because you split a mirrored partition into two identical partitions and boot off the second one?
