This just doesn't make sense SOMETHING must have happened to change C: into a logical partition P: ... but none of the steps you say you performed could have caused this.

I wish I could help further but at this point I'm clueless...Hopefully someone else has an idea.

tamer,

You Can / You cannot successfully boot the hard disk under question?

I need, at this time, only the answer to that one question.

That is probably caused by P having an "ID code" not recognized by Win 7.

How that occurred I do not know.

What I do know is that sometimes TestDisk can enable you to be able to access the disk.

After that, then if you want a dual-boot system, then let us know.

Personally, I am very strongly opposed to dual-booting due to the numerous problems which users encounter.

I am also a strong advocate of ditching the eXPired operating system.

is the key with the wavy flag.

Maximize the output of Disk Management:
