    I re partitioned my mac drive using Yosemite before doing a clean install. and After I installed Windows 8.1 on Boot Camp.
    My problem is Windows does not see Macintosh yet Disk Management can see the partition but no drive letter and cannot assign drive letter.
    I have File Vault turned off.

    Please Advise, Regards

    MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013), OS X Yosemite (10.10)

    Why would it? Windows doesn't speak HFS+.

    Windows can read only HFS+ using Bootcamp software which gives the flexibility to copy data from mac drive to windows drive without having to reboot.
