More information

While working with the bootable media disk letters might sometimes differ from the way Windows identifies drives. For example, the D: drive identified in Acronis Bootable Media might correspond to the E: drive in Windows. The reason for this is that Linux has its own rules of drive naming (See Chapter 2.1.1 Naming Convention at http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/other-formats/pdf/Partition.pdf). This is absolutely normal and there is no need to worry about the difference in drive letters assignment.
