Things of note:

- e: drive has full permissions for administrators, 'system', local admin, and everyone
- e: drive is 2GB is size, but I only set a static size of 1536 MB.
- if I create a 0-byte pagefile.sys, it is deleted upon reboot
- upon logging in, I get a msg that no swapfile could be written
- I've used this Microsoft Knowledge Base article as reference: http://support.micro...kb;en-us;315270
- I've deleted my swap partition, and re-created it in windows xp and still see this problem
- drive e: is a partition on the same disk as drive c:
- I tried making this swapfile on drive d: (separate hard disk) but it experienced the same problem
- I've since set a swap file on drive c: (50mb) anda e: (1.5 gb) but it doesn't make a difference, it still wont create the pagefile.sys file on any drive.
- I've added 'system' to the group policy for which users can create/modify pagefiles... no help.

Any help?
