    I have created a vol H to my C volume. to try and install Windows 7 download of RC1. I used disk management -Storage and did the change. But on my Toshiba P100 - F12, for multiboot. I only find HARD DRIVE[NO LETTERS],CD/DVD AND FDD. So can someone help me get it right.

    I have downloaded the iso file from Microsoft but don't know how to get extracted and mounted to my parition H. Can someone please help on this issue too.

    I have found also for some reason that Computer shows 2 cd/dvd drives, but I only have one.

    I use Norton 360 version 3 and use wireless.

    The system seems stable. But I would appreciate some guidance.

    Thank you

    Thank you, for your helpful information.
    :eek:

    I made a bad error when I made my H drive partition active. It normally is C active for booting etc. My download of the Windows 7 was ok, it extracted ok but not to the correct disc,recovery disk etc.

    But with my recovery in cd player. Bios set to HDD -[0] AND F12 PRESSED REPEATLY i got to a new install. Thankfully my data files are backed up.

    But I do not fancy using C with a new parition on it.

    Maybe a new hard drive parition programme. But for vista and windows 7 --which would prove reliable.
