Invalid drive in search path

Explanation: There is a drive letter in the system search path that does not exist on the system.

Diagnosis: The most common cause is specifying an incorrect drive letter or directory in the PATH statement in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. If the PATH statement contains a reference to a removable disk or any other drive that isn't always present on the system, then this error message may be produced when the drive is disconnected from the PC. Various software products add their program's resident folder to the PATH statement, which can occasionally cause problems.

Recommendation: Verify the accuracy of the PATH command in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
