I'm currently using MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition v7.7. I deleted all my partitions to clean install, however, my "C:" went away and don't know how to get it back. On the "Create New Partition" dialog box, all I don't get the option to select a letter. How can I assign one here?

@G41M: I'm glad you asked that! The option for the only says "None"
@whs: That option is grayed out, even after I format the partition.
I have set it to "Primary" under the "modify" section. This will show you the available options.
Remember: I can't get to Task Manager because I don't how to do it without Windows being installed yet.
Not 100% sure but, if you are using PW bootable CD/usb flash drive, you can not assign/change drive letter. You can do that in the Windows version of PW but as whs pointed out above Disk Management is simpler. Just go ahead and do a clean install of the Operating System you want and it will automatically assign drive letter.
That makes A LOT of sense now. I will try to clean install like that then and hopefully, during the installation, it will assign a letter. As it stands right now, the partition is set as "active" and "primary" (not logical). I'm gonna try to install like that and I will let you gentlemen know about it later. Thanks a lot G!
Good morning! Both of you were right. I however G41M pointed out something that made so much sense: I couldn't change a letter with a usb bootable stick. I did the installation as normal and the process automatically assigned a letter for me. Thanks a lot for your help and advice!
Most probably, the reason why you can not assign/change drive letter is that PW Live CD uses "Unix-like" Operating system which uses Unix mount points in its file system and does not assign drive letters to drives/partitions like DOS, Windows, etc.
Glad you sorted that out.
