Yes I'm sure, that's one of the benefits of screwing up so many times I've learnt what's important and what isn't, the install drive is recorded in the registry but that value is not used. As an example of what didn't work I installed from L: (a D-Tools vSCSI drive) then patched & started the game, result: no music, I put the CD into G: (the only real optical drive), result: music, I disable G: using Starforce Nightmare and mount disc image on L:, result: music.
@Frog: Please check that the ZIP you downloaded contains a registry file called WipeoutXL.reg if it doesn't you can just copy & paste the contents or add the missing entries by hand.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
"DirectoryName"="C:\\Program Files\\Wipeout 2097"
