    Impossible beyond F:, because guid is in hex.
    I do actually have a half-finished BAT script around somewhere that I was tweaking for myself, which doesn't need drive letters and instead uses GUID's. It's not mine though and it's been on the back burner so long I can't remember what's what, I'll try to find the source and get back to you.
    [EDIT: I understand now. Hopefully someone can advise on converting hex into GUID or finding it elsewhere?)

    Given that the OP was half a year ago, it's clearly not an urgent issue anymore,
    I've unsuccessfully been trying to achieve what I finally now have for years. It's always worth it. I hate that we call threads dead and walk away, or worse close them.

    Multi-boot Windows 10/11 - RTM, RP, Beta, and Insider

    This is from Win 11 but I believe it's the same on W10, I'd have to boot up one of my 10 OS's. I do not recall doing anything special to get drive letters in the Nav pane. But, well, anyhow............

    If the original question has changed and is no longer valid, please say so and I will zap my post!

    I meant only that in guids per se, the highest character is as in hex. The guids specified in, and created by, the script contain desired drive letter as last character. Perhaps arbitrarily. I will experiment.

    Later :
    Yup, arbitrary. I made all letters :

    (Absence of This PC unresolved, of course. Any further work on it would be out of common interst, not my need.)

    Okay, have more to say but I'm still hard at work getting to the most minimal and repeatable solution.

    Some interesting finds so far:
