I am desperate and hairless! I backed up two partitions, each contained Windows XP. Each was hidden from the other and I used OS Selector. I changed partition sizes and it all went wrong in that the MBR was corrupted and then the Boot.ini. I sorted everything and restored the first partition. OK When I restored partition 2 it would only allow a drive letter (L). I can't hide partition 1 while restoring partition 2 to force it to be (C). I presumed and perhaps someone can confirm please. Any backed up partition can go back in any position within unallocated space (i.e. 1 could become 2). How do I get for example, 3 partitions all bootable as C: and hidden from each other, without re-installing windows please? Also I presume I should be able to use a partition saved with Basic Windows only and recover it twice as two separate partitions and then add different software to each When I first did this it was from installs not recoveries. Thank you. p.s. Should the two Boot.ini files be the same for two partitions?
