    when I install boot camp for Windows 7 it installs another partition on the Windows 7 operating side. On the snow leopard side Disk manager only shows 2 partitions. I reported this in a earlier post which was removed.

    Does anyone have any idea why another partition in the windows 7 partition has another smaller partition?

    Windows 7 Disk partition view

    See the enclosed drive partition.png
    The F drive is the partition created on installation of Boot camp.

    Go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management and make a screenshot of that.

    That is why I asked the Control Panel question. It is probably just the EFI partition anyway, but that view might have been nice.

    If you ever come about Control Panel, maybe try the think I hinted at slightly.

    EFI directory not valid

    It is not the EFI directory as it is shown off the root directory /EFI.

    As you can see there is a conflict between the two O.S. Windows reports 3 partitions and MAC O.S. reports only 2
