Hi all. I have a dual boot of Windows Vista and Windows XP on separate partitions on my hard drive. Well, the partition table is allocated as the accompanying image illustrates. I have the system recovery partition, Vista partition and then a data partition. I am unable to make the XP partition available in under Vista. It is completely nonexistent under Computer Management|Disk Management. I loaded Acronis Disk Director and assigned it a drive later but this did not work. So, I want to assign the XP drive a letter and set it as active in Windows Vista.. Does anybody know how to accomplish this?
Thank you in advance.

You should be able to right click the partition in the lower pane of that window and "Change Drive Letters and Paths" > "Add"..
