    I am making 4 bootable partions on my CPU. 2 W2KP and 2X

    I have prepared four partitions, and loaded the forst copy ow W2KP. When it loads it sees the visable partitions as d/e/f/g. I have used Disk Director 10 to change tehn to read w/x/y/z. I then made a .TIB and loaded it to the second partiotion. It now sees the partions d/e/f/g.

    How can I insue that all four partitions see the same letters taht I have assigned without having to go and manually change each and every OS>?

    Each OS will (may) assign letters differently. This is a fact of life. The way to ensure consistency is to ensure that each is given a meaningful volume name (e.g. 'System', 'Data', 'Backup' etc).

    When you backup and restore ignore the drive letters and use the volume names.

    selkov,

    You will be better off following the instruction in Dan Goodell's website which I posted in the other thread. Each OS will be C: drive when it's booted and the other OSs will be hidden. You will be able to have one or more data partitions as well.

    Why use Disk Director?

    Just use the Disk Management tool in Windows to set the drive letters as you wish, tell TI to restore the volumes where you wish

    I used the forum search feature and went looking for all of Brian K's postings; then further refined the looking into the date area of the original postings. May 1-2nd.

    I have a good memory. No, the posts were made a day or two apart.
