    That's the way I learn just about everything; the hard way!......Sometime I learn it more than once.

    It's the best way! Doing it more than once just strengthens those neural pathways :)

    If your still doing it past the ten mark however....

    I generally try to learn something about it before I break it. Then when I break it I learn some more.

    Hello Smartey, good point!

    Though usually by the 7th or 8th time, I just about have it figured out....

    LOL :) "just about" is better than "not at all"

    Hi Ted,

    Most of what I 'just about' have figured out changes with the next release. I've gotten used to just about having stuff figured out. Reaching the goal is nice, but the real fun is in the journey, IMHO.

    Hello Gary....:)

    So true; it's a journey not a destination.

    I have some news about this matter, which I came up with yesterday.

    I appeared that I needed to see the partition, cause I wanted to write a boot record from BCD into that, so I had to assign a drive letter from DiskManagement. Afterwards, disk management does not allow you to "hide" the drive letter again, but DISKPART does. From within Windows, no boot-from-install-disk required.

    So, to unassign the drive letter once you've assigned it, you must enter an elevated CMD and...:

    Code:
     
    DISKPART {enter}
     
    DISKPART> list disk {enter}
     
    disk 0 
    disk 1 etc. 
     
    DISKPART>select disk 0 (where "0" is your hard disk no. with the 200mb partition on it) {enter}
     
    DISKPART> list partition (to find your 200mb partition) {enter}
    DISKPART> select partition 1 (or your 200mb partition number.) {enter}
    DISKPART> remove {enter}
    DISKPART> exit {enter}
    The drive letter is removed and the partition is hidden again.

    I noticed that everyone is talkin gabout the system partition, well if you already have a partition larger then 200 megs then it will not set a boot partiton

    I have 2 parttitons both 125 gigs
    disk 0 part 0 is my vista partiton and the windows 7 system
    disk 0 part 1 is my windows 7 partition.

    after i installed i just went to disk manager and assigned adrive letter and have access to my vista files.
