I mean really hide, when first windows 7 partition/installation can't share, use and even see second windows 7 partition/installation.
I hope now is clear what I want to do?

As far simply having an installation of your own the logon with password will also help. The problem with having PM installed on the same drive your son uses is that he would be able to unhide the other installation as well if he knows the program is on or simply comes acrossed it.

It does for me.

I just hid the system partition ( C ) from the partition I am currently booted into (D).

I have no idea why you can't make it work.

PM 10 can still see it of course - otherwise there would be no way to ever unhide it.

If you don't want anyone else to be able to unhide it - then uninstall PM10.

You can reinstall PM 10 , or use the boot cd to unhide it later.

This is the main gui seen when first opening the giveaway version of 10 up. The second is the full screen option.The 3rd is going upto the view tab and checking off the command task bar option there.

At the bottom of the screen you right click on the intended partition/drive there to bring up the options menu.

In PM10 there is a option to hide another primary partitions on boot time sequence.
But it does'n hide it. So if I have to hide it manualy than PM10 must be installed on every primary partiotion - on every OS. Am i wrong?

The only thing I saw when downloading the giveaway was unzipping the setup on C which then includes another software updater program unnecessary to look and see which programs you have on see newer versions.

Finally once that is unpacked into a separate folder and you get past the software updater prompts you are asked where you want 10 unpacked to then start the separate setup for PM 10!

The installation proceeds normally from there into the Program Files directory like any other software creating it's own folder as well as desktop shortcut. You run it from the Windows you are booted in that it is installed to.

That's all there is to that. The only time you want it on more then one drive is if you want to hide the host from a second installation when setting that as default. Once you click the hide partition item in the right click menu you will be prompted to confirm. You expect to see that type of prompt with any program.
