I have a 4 internal hard drive Computer with 16 partitions. When I formated one of the partitions and Installed Windows 8 CP on 120Gb disk partition 1 60Gb. Windows 8 reported partitions 1 70Gb on a 250Gb disk needed to be formated. This partition worked fine and was visable to Windows 7 SP1. Partition 1 on the 250Gb disk was bootable and worked!! Why is Windows 8 CP unable to access this partition when it works GREAT with windows 7.
My Computer is
Mother Board - ASUS P5E
CPU - Intel Quad Q6600 2.4GHZ
Memory - 6Gb
Internal Hard Drives - 500GB, 320Gb, 250Gb, 120Gb

I do not advise using more than 1 partition to a disk.
Using that many disks is also ill advised
backup your files and repartition the disks as a single vol then move the files back using directories etc
