Windows 7 Build 7100 32-bit, Windows Vista 32-bit
 
 

I have the same thing:
C: = Windows Vista
D: = Personal stuff, downloads, etc.
G: = Windows 7

When in Vista, I see all those drives. In Windows 7 however, I don't see the C: drive with Vista. Instead, the G: drive becomes the C: drive.

I couldn't really be bothered though, and I don't know a fix for it either...

Hello dota, welcome to Se7en Forums!

That's common, nothing to be worried about; though I don't have the expertise to explain it satisfactorily for you. Keep checking back; someone that can explain it will be along soon.

Hi there

Put your windows cd in your drive and reboot, and then do a start up repair. That should sort it.

Hi dota,

From 7

Start, right click on computer, Manage, Disc Management.

You should see your drive all you have to do is to assign it a drive letter
by right click.

It probably happens to stop accidental erasure or your Vista drive and seems to be normal. I have even gone so far as to hide my 7, C:\ drive while I am in Vista so that all my other partitions have the same drive letters when viewed from both OS's

I hope this helps
