I recently installed Windows 7. I'm still mostly in XP, and the partition that has always been C: (first partition on disk 0) contains my boot files. When I select Windows 7 from the boot menu, it boots into my Windows 7 installation, which is located on the partition that has always been drive L:.
Windows 7 makes L: C:. In other words, when listing the drives in Explorer or Disk Management, the drive on which I installed Windows 7, which has always been L: in XP, now shows as C:. My original C: doesn't show in Explorer at all, and in Disk Management, it appears without a drive letter assigned to it.
In effect, Windows 7 has made a partition totally inaccessible.
Is there any solution?
