    Hopefully this is something simple.

    On my machine I was running TC for my Win 7 installation. (Used to power on my machine, then it prompts me to enter my password and then W7 boots)I decided to install an additional new SSD into my machine. My goal was to dual boot. After the installation of SSD Windows 7 with TC still worked. I then began the installation processs of Windows 8.1, Popped in DVD follow the wizard, selected the new drive and finished. Restarted, no TC menu came up, and then machine proceeded to boot my Win 8 OS. Seems like my Win 7 Partition disappeared and no dual boot menu and no TC prompt. In windows 8 I see the other disk, but 476gb of 476gb .

    I then proceeded to WinHex and here are the Screen shots

    HD0 (Original Win 7 TC, at least I hope it is)

    HD1 (New SSD Win 8.1)

    To further add, I have no TC disk. AND if I select the specific HD0 drive to boot in bios first it states Invalid Partition Table!

    If you need more info please let me know. I really appreciate this, Thank you
