Windows 7: operating system is missing

operating system is missing

Hi everyone. I was trying to do a system restore and I do not have any restore points. That is not the issue. The problem is when I go into advanced system properties I have two c drives. One is active the other one is missing. I have uploaded a picture to illustrate what I am saying. The PC seems to be working fine.
I hope someone can help me with this dilemma. deanie44

Hello again Deanie.


Type/paste msconfig in the Windows start menu search box and hit the enter key, under the boot tab, post a snip of that for us to look at.

I didn't think that would help but it didn't hurt, let's see what others may have to say.

This happens after a repair and is resolved by highlighting the C (Missing) listing, then click Configure to turn it off.

Normally this forces the utility to show the actual C listing so you can turn it on, but since it's already showing you may have to turn it off (along with all other listed drives) by highlighting each to Configure, set to off and then highlight C:System to turn On..

Let us know if this solves the issue as there are other steps to take if it doesn't.
