    Hi,

    my setup is a 3 partition hd master (C:,D:,E: ) and a 3 partition slave (F:,G:,H: ). When booted from the rescue CD it displays that partition D: is the 1st partition on the 2nd drive. So TI8 does its own letter assignment. While this is not a big threat, it might lead to confusion when things go wrong (i.e. you have to restore from your backup).

    Is there a way to make drive letters 'sticky' also for the rescue CD?

    -Hans

    Hi Hans - is the drive letter assignment by TI consistent with this Microsoft article:

    I don't know of any way to get Linux (the Recovery CD operating system) and Windows to assign drive letters the same way.

    What I do is to name the partitions to avoid confusion. A partition named BOOT is pretty obvious as is BACKUP or DATA, EXTERNAL etc., and these names will be the same in Linux and Windows.
