When starting BartPE, I can see my B: and my D:. How can I see my HD. Do I need some kind of tool for this?

Is your hard drive on some sort of RAID ? Also if the drivers for your particular controller aren't in Windows XP as standard you will need to add them.
I had to add drivers for my ITE raid array.

I have no raid. just 2 normal HD's

How are these drives connected? Via S-ATA, etc?
Which kind of chipset does your mainboard have?
Have you tested your pe-cd with other machines?
There's a bit more information needed.

Are you using recovery software such as Goback or a drive overlay software such as Maxblast. I have to disable Goback to see my HDD.

Are the drives FAT32?
About a third of the time, I can't see FAT32 from WinPE. I never could figure out why.
I don't remember what the others were, but on was a Windows ME machine on an Azza KT3ABX with normal VIA ATAcontroller onboard. Nothing fancy.

I think I must add to this that I'm running BartPE from VMWare..
Could this be the problem??

In VMWare is the hard drive configured to be a scsii disk? If so you need to add the VMWare scsii drivers:

VMware most likely is the problem.
I've got virtual PC and same thing. I wouldn't be alarmed in virtual mode.
Virtual isn't good for testing eveything. Also, depending on how you have your ramdrive set up and how much RAM your computer has, you might find some odd problems here-and-there that you won't see when booted from CD.
I'm not sure how much RAM is ideal. I'm limping by on 256MB. I know if I had any less, it wouldn't work. 512 - 1024MB would certainly be ideal.
Without proper amounts of memory, some things won't initialize. Because of limitations of PE, you may or may not get an error message when something can't load.
