2012-01-30, 15:39 PM

HI ,

I have total no of 4 partitions in my HDD 

1. 200MB

2.C drive 287GB

3.D drive 29gb.

4. and 15 GB for OEM .

 

THE PROBLEM NOW THAT I AM FACING IS I HAVE 265 GB OF UNALLOCATED SPACE , AND I CANT CREATE PARTITION OF IT . BECAUSE MAXIMUM NO OF PRIMARY PARTTITONS ARE THERE !

sO IF I FORMAT THE HARD DRIVE . I WILL LOOASE THE ORIGINAL WINDOW THAT I GOT PREINSTALLED  AND RECOVERY ALSO .

IF I CREATE THE RECOVERY DISK IT WILL BE THE IMAGE OF THE SAME SYSTEM AND THAT 265 gb WILL STILL BE UN ALLOCATED ..

 

SO IS THERE ANY WAY IN WHICH I CAN USE THE UNALLOCATED SPACE WITHOUT LOOSING THE ORIGINAL OS .

 

I HOPE U UNDERSTAND MY PROBLEM !

I saw someone here wrote that win7 (don't know if all versions) doesn't support more than 4 four partitions so I think the next best thing might be expandind the C partition. You can do that by clicking start and in the search button write "partition" and it will give you something like Create and format hard disk partitions. Click that and a window will open which is showing the partitions. Now RIGHT-click on the C: partition and select extend partition. Then just click next as it will try to expand it with as much unallocated memory as possible. It shouldn't take long and you will have that unallocated space allocated in partition C. Report if this helps you.

Still need help? I'm assuming this Ideapad is a computer. But if any case maybe I can help Ya. I keep changing OS's qnd deleting and changing OS's and dual booting with different OS's. So I got myself in this situation and I just fixed it today. I went from 320 gig>287>167gb. And I had 115gb of unallocated space. So I put my windows 7 back on there, installed a few programs and what not, and I'm back to having all of thug 320 gb back without deleting the stuff I just installed.. So let me know
