Missing boot drive

My system is dual boot with 4 physical HDD's installed. Drive C: is the Windows 7 boot drive and contains all the Windows 7 system files. Drive D: is a Vista Boot Drive. When I boot Windows 7, the drive management console (under system management) does not list drive C: at all (it only lists 3 physical HDD's) AND it lists Drive E: as the system disk. Drive E: is a data disk and contains no Windows system files at all. Even though there is no listing in this console for Drive C: (OR the physical disk it resides on) the system boots normally and Drive C: is shown in Windows 7 explorer under Computer. However, some programs which rely on this data (Norton Ghost for example) do not work since they cannot find the C: drive. Using the rescan option in Disk Management and Device Manager has no effect. I have used Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Norton 360 to scan for and eliminate any Malware from the system. At this moment I am totally stumped. Help!
