OMG. Good one samiko. All of us assumed that SystemRoot was C:\Windows and his system32 was in there with a different name.
Never tried to look at it from another angle, and perceive that maybe his SystemRoot is different

Thank you darth_ash I had this problem before with other systems. So I usually connect to servers via %pdc% and other system folders under %systemroot% some machines have different configurations especially if their primary drive isn't C

Which folder did u find it in.
That folder is ur SystemRoot. which by default is "C:\Windows".
U dont need to worry. As the folder u find it in is ur new "Windows Directory" not "C:\Windows"
