Windows View Boot Partition 9,4/10 6042 reviews

May 02, 2017  If the system partition has been corrupted, you can use BCDBoot to recreate the system partition files by using new copies of these files from the Windows partition. Boot your PC to a command line. For example, boot to the Windows installation disk and press Shift+F10, or boot to Windows PE (WinPE: Create USB Bootable drive). So, I started out by deleting the old Win7 Bootcamp Partition using the Bootcamp Assistant on Mac and then created a new partition and went on to install Windows 10. Everything seems to have gone smoothly: Partitioning, Installation of Windows 10, and the Apple Bootcamp drivers. However, the Mac Partition does not show up in Windows File Explorer. To view and delete partitions on Windows-8 or 8.1 please open the Windows-8 Disk Management to see. The Disk-Management in Windows 8! Hot-key Win+X and click Disk Management (see Image-1 Arrow-1) In the Windows-8 Disk Management you can delete the partitions via mouse right-click on the partition (see Image-2 Arrow 1). Hidden partitions on hard drives and USB flash drives store files, recovery and utility software. Many personal computer manufacturers use a hidden partition for the recovery software and no longer ship software CDs. Some people use hidden partitions to store files, which contain sensitive, illegal or private data.

If you ever cannot boot into Windows, simply boot into the Windows 10 installation media, press Shift + F10 to open the command prompt, and execute the below command. Replace with the actual drive letter of the recovery partition.

Microsoft gave us the System Reserved Partition (SRP) in all desktop and server Windows versions since Windows 7. Today we'll examine the SRP's behavior in Windows 10. To let the proverbial cat out of the bag, nothing has changed in the SRP's behavior in Windows 10, but I thought it would still be instructive for us to take a 'deep dive' into the partition's behavior. Windows took about 10 minutes to install (yay new fast SSD) and now I can see the OS X partition under windows, so everything is fine (albeit the complete reinstall). It did do 1 good thing however: the new bootcamp 'forgot' to delete the 8GB partition after installing windows the first time, so I was left with 8GB of empty space on a partition.

I have a 16GB USB Flash Drive that is partitioned into two different sizes. The first partition contains a bootable version of Ubuntu, the second partition is for general saving of files.

Windows will only recognise the first partition. I have tried using Bootice but this breaks the bootable partition. Disk Management recognises the second partition but does not allow me to do anything with it.

Is there a way to make both partitions accessible by Windows and keep the USB disk bootable?

Windows does not allow you to see anything but the first partition on USB flash drives. This is a well known issue and Microsoft doesn't seem to be considering it a major issue. There is a firmware hack for some brands that will tell Windows the drive is not flash media, however doing this may cause performance/reliability problems.

It's a bummer.


I have had good success in accessing USB Partitions in Windows using latest version of Bootice

The important think you need to keep in mind is that, you set the first partition as accessible before booting it again. For example - If you had set the second partition as accessible, then before removing the USB Drive, you need to set the first partition as accessible.

If you dont want to use Bootice, then you can use a Filter Driver such as Diskmod to make your USB Flash Drive appear as USB HDD so that Windows displays all the partitions.

Windows might not be automatically assigning a drive letter to the second partition.

If the option is not greyed out, in Disk management,

  • Right click the partition, and click 'Change Drive Letter and Paths'
  • Add a drive letter.

If this works, you should see the disk in My Computer

Hello, I have a Toshiba Satellite L875D-S7332 Laptop, and I am having trouble with my windows loading (Win 10) getting error 0xc000000f with blue screen, and I also noticed that the BOOT Partition is missing in cmd>Diskpart. How can I fix this? I am not very Tech savvy, all the wordings I am using is from staring at my PC for 2 days straight, so be gentle with me on instructions please. lol

When I load under Windows normally, I get black screen with message 'No Bootable devices -- Please restart system' but it doesn't do anything restarting it, this is under the 'Boot Mode: UEFI Boot' in the BIOS Setup Utility and if I change that and use CSM Boot, I get the blue screen with the 0xc000000f msg

I've tried the Startup Repair Tool with the installation disk, that did not work either
