Yes

I am at a loss for right now, so I'm calling in some reinforcements.

 

Deleting it should have put it back to the way it was before creating it.

 

For the time being, I sincerely apologize that it's going this way right now.  However, being that this is Overclock.net, I'm confident we will get it straightened out.

 

I do have some additional questions:

 

  1. How long ago did you install Windows XP?
  2. What operating system did you have before Windows XP?
  3. Are these 4 hard drives in a RAID configuration?
  4. Is the Hitachi hard drive new?
  5. What's on the Hitachi hard drive?
  6. What letter is assigned to the Hitachi drive?
  7. I see in the screenshot that it says "You need to restart your computer before the changes you made to this device take effect".  What changes did you make?

 

I'm beginning to think that the solution right now is disconnecting the Hitachi hard drive.  I mean, based on what I see in the screenshot regarding needing to restart before the changes take effect, it seems to me that the problem we're experiencing right now is being caused by the presence of this hard drive.  I mean, Windows XP wanted you to restart in order for those supposed changes that you made to take effect, and so now I'm wondering if the first time you rebooted was after creating "DisableRemovable".  If so, then this problem was not caused by creating that, but rather it's the hard drive itself.
