ngraf Posted October 31, 2005 Share Posted October 31, 2005 I'm using WinPE 2004 but the same thing happens in at least one older version.I cannot assign an access path (mount point) to a newly created partition with diskpart. I try the following:select disk 5create partition primary size=2000select volume 6assign mount=K:\mntAnd get this error message:DiskPart could not assign the drive letter or mount point.Make sure the drive letter or mount point is valid.Assigning a drive letter to the partition works:select volume 6assign letter=GMounting an existing partition at the same point works:select volume 5assign mount=K:\mntIf I reboot WinPe, the previously failed command now succeeds:select volume 6assign mount=K:\mntIt seems that some discovery task occurs at boot that does not occur when the partition is created.Has anybody else seen this? Does anybody know how to fix it without a reboot?Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
