Dual Boot (SL&W7) - Can't see 3rd partition from Windows 7 - 11-20-2009, 05:12 AM
I have a Dell Mini 10v which I am dual booting Snow Leopard and Windows 7. In my setup I created 3 partitions.
1st for Win 7 (Fat32-later converted to NTFS)
2nd for Snow Leopard (HTFS - journaled)
3rd for file Storage / intermediate host for my itunes folder (so I can use it between both operating systems) (FAT32).
This is issue is that the 3rd storage partition does not appear in Windows 7 but does in OS X.
I created my setup using this guide:
Dual Booting for Dummies - Snow Leopard with NBM 0.8.3rc2 and Windows 7
In running Diskpart I am only able to see 4 Partitions on my disk.
Partition 1 - 20k - possibly Chameleon?
Partition 2 - 200MB - Boot
Partition 3 -50GB - Windows 7
Partition 4 - 60GB - Snow Leopard
There should be a 5th Partition about 210 GB - It does appears in OS X however partitions 1 & 2 do not. My limited knowledge might indicate that it can only see 4 primary partitions at one time.
I have tried formatting the partition under Win7 disk manager, but this causes partitions 1&2, to fall apart/vanish.
ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED!
