windows 7 starter 32 bit
 
 

Under command prompt it is shown along with the directories on the drive. I typed setup.exe and Install Windows or Repair comes up. I have tried the repair, no good. When in the command prompt the c: is no longer called c but x. When i get to the screen where it is asking for driver and hit the browse button, I have Recovery C:, OS (D:) and Boot(x:). I can browse all of them, Recovery C has directory Imaging and Revcovery, D has everything that was on the c drive (ie program files, drivers, dell, users, windows), the X drive has dell, program files, sources, tools, users, windows.

Drive letters are just drive letters. What is called C in win7 is called D now in recovery environment. X is a ramdrive (drive in memory). X is the current running OS.
