Is there a way to permanently get rid of this so windows boot manager/loader etc. doesn't "get confused" for lack of better words? Thanks.
Are you very sure you deleted those registry entries? Do it again and reboot.
They are back on reboot? Also the dosdevices/E?
Disk management shows the drive letters?
Elevated command prompt:

Code:
 
diskpart
list volumes
exit
Now reassign drive letters using disk management

BSOD 0xF4 is most likely due to SSD not accessible anymore. Do you remember event ID 9 "disk controller not responding" (or something like that) in event log?

Did you already make a full backup as told you before?
disk controller failed, ssd not connected firmly, sata cable failing, disk is dying.

"power cycle" my Crucial M4 SSD=> How did you do that?

F: is my microcard, sorry it used to be H: I forgot I changed it. So that is okay now, no problem anymore.

To power cycle my M4 in my laptop:
1)Boot to Bios, leave idle there for 20 minutes.
2)Shutdown and remove power and battery for 30 seconds.
3)Repeat steps 1 and 2, once more.

Desktop instructions included here->http://forum.crucial.com/t5/Solid-St...p/64485#M19896

If it's my Sata cable in my laptop, I would need to tear down my laptop to get to it I believe, correct?(Asus G73JH)

I have not had any Event ID 9's since I uninstalled the Intel RST 10.8 driver and installed the ms msachi driver around four days ago.

SSD is dying! Or damaged sata cable. Or disk controller. Make a new threat for that cause original problem has been solved

If you run vssadmin list, the volume listed at top of mine, even though volume path doesn't show it, I tracked down, and it's "system reserved". Is that standard on yours also??
And does vssadmin list providers, Only show- Provider name: 'Microsoft Software Shadow Copy provider 1.0'??
