Im running vista right now, and usually I have no problem switching between Operating systems.
I have my Hard drive partitioned into 2 sections
C: =OS and programs
D: =Back up
Now, when I put my vista disc in, it recognizes the drives, but when I put my XP disc in, it doesn't read the backup partition, it just reads the HDD as one entire partition.
(Though The last time I tried, it came up as C (NTFS), which is correct, and D(unknown) but it should not say that, It's NTFS as well..)
I used the Vista partitioning tool to do this since Partition magic doesn't work in vista too well. I really can't afford to lose the things on my back up partition, I already did once, but managed to recover most of the files. What should I do?
