My girlfriend's Windows 7 netbook had a partition with the letter V. I don't know where it came from no what it is. It contained a couple of files including command.com which is from pre Windows XP I think so I'm not sure why it was there. A toy that my daughter has requires that it be mounted as drive V: so I renamed this mysterious drive V: to W: After a reboot I now get:
Disk Error Press any key to restart
I booted UBCD4Win from a USB stick and ran FixMBR (I backed up the original MBR first.) This had no effect. I think that what might have happened is that the small partition that you get at the beginning of the disk in Windows 7 somehow acquired a drive letter and me changing it broke Windows ability to boot somehow.
Does anyone know how to fix this?
