My XP Drive was afflicted so somebody bought me a new drive and now my XP is installed again... and can recreate some of these reports.
Looking at your first post did you check in Service to see if the Logical Disk Manager was listed or is it missing?
If it's missing it easy to add it and that should take care of that first message but I don't know if that will solve your problem or not.
If the Service is missing (o even if it is afflicted) you can add it back or replace the one you have if needed.
First make a manual System Restore point so you can undo any adjustments if needed.
Open Notepad (and only Notepad) to create a new text file:
Click Start, Run and in the box enter:
Click OK to open a new Notepad file.
Copy and paste the following lines of BOLD text into the new Notepad file:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
"DisplayName"="Logical Disk Manager Administrative Service"
"Description"="Configures hard disk drives and volumes. The service only runs for configuration processes and then stops."
Save the new text file with a .reg extension to your desktop or someplace you can remember with a name you can remember, something like:
After saving the file, close Notepad.
Locate the ldm.reg file on your desktop and double click it.
Alternatively, you can right click the ldm.reg file, choose Merge or Open With... and select the Registry Editor or Import.
Respond in the affirmative to the question... Are you sure you want to...?
You should then see a message that the information was successfully entered into the registry.
Reboot your system and test to be sure the changes "stick" and check the Service again - the Service should be Manual start, not Automatic.
As you can see from the description of the Service:
The service only runs for configuration processes and then stops.
After importing and restarting will disk management open now without complaining and if not what are the messages you see?
You can remove the ldm.reg file when you are done.
P.S. In XP sfc /scannow does not replace corrupted system files and if anybody thinks it does I can give you a tutorial that will prove that to you and also you will learn what it really does.
And sfc /scannow it will likely prompt for an SP3 installation CD which mot people don't have anyway.
