The DOS multibooting procedure between DOS, OS/2 and Windows 95 has became a wonderful project of mutibooting between these OSes under Virtual PC 2007. However, for one OS, I'm running into issues here. I have Windows 95 installed on the third hard drive. Using GRUB4DOS, I had to hide the MS-DOS hard disk image on (hd0) and the OS/2 Warp hard disk image on (hd1). I then mapped the third hard disk image where Windows 95 is installed on (hd2) as (hd0) and although the OS work fine, it's showing original drive letters, M, N, O and P as phantom hard drives and drives C, D, E and F using MS-DOS compatiblity mode file system. Here are some screenshots for proof of this issue: Windows Explorer showing drive letters M, N, O and P as phantom drives. Device manager listing drive letters M, N, O and P in the current drive letter assignment in System Properties > Disk drives. System Properties > Performance reporting drives C, D, E and F using MS-DOS compatibility mode file system. Here is the Windows 95 entry in the GRUB4DOS MENU.LST file title Microsoft Windows 95\n\n find --set-root /IO.SYS unhide (hd2,0) unhide (hd2,4) unhide (hd2,5) unhide (hd2,6) root (hd2,0) savedefault hide (hd0,0) hide (hd0,4) hide (hd0,5) hide (hd0,6) hide (hd1,0) hide (hd1,4) hide (hd1,5) hide (hd1,6) map (hd0) (hd2) map (hd2) (hd0) map --floppies=1 chainloader +1 Rather than taking the risk of having to reinstall Windows 95 on the third hard disk image, is there a way how to get rid of drive letters M, N, O and P completely? Hiding drive letters using TweakUI won't help since DOS and Windows File Manager will still see these drives.
