Thanks for the help. I grew up with DOS but have not used it in so long that I forgot the syntax of that command and did not have time to look for it. I was working on the unit and came back the the good old SDMB a couple minutes later and my answer was waiting.
Desmostylus was right though about the situation. Brutus was right with the syntax and thanks for the quick reply.
Unfortunately it didnt fix the problem and I had to rebuild the system from scratch. I couldn’t access the WINNT dir from DOS because it was NTFS. I didn’t think it would work, but I had to try it. The repair console didn’t work either. It hosed everything up worse. I had to call 4 people at 3am to put the databases back together.
Ah well, such is the life of a mid-shifter.
