    CF boot. CF Shows up as D:

    After following Sfiorito's EWF guide down to every tiny detail, there is one problem that i just cant sort out. My CF boots fine into DOS, and apparently transferring the files from HD to CF is done correctly. However, when I do my initial boot from CF, it almost resumes from hibernaion in complete, but always leads to a BSOD. Pressing F8 while booting gives me the option to "delete retoration data" and do a "fresh" boot. Doing this makes my CF appear as drive D, and obviously the drive is no longer "protected" by EWF..

    Any ideas?

    Best regards, Ketil.
