Hard to say without more information, as requested in

but I suspect you have stale mounts from your previous install. See where
your mounts point to by running the "mount" command. Then run
"mount -sf d:/cygwin /; mount -sf d:/cygwin/bin /usr/bin; mount -sf
d:/cygwin/lib /usr/lib" and reinstall. You can then remove the old tree...
