Okay, first I apologize to the mods if this is in the wrong section and sorry to everyone for not searching first. You know how you get frustrated when trying to do something you don't understand and then it doesn't work? Yea, that's me at the moment.
So I'm trying to create another partition so I can run Windows 7 or XP, am following a tutorial on YouTube showing how to do this and everything is working great until I click finish on the New Simple Volume Wizard. Then the pop-up appears, warning that clicking Yes will change the basic volume to some other volume (dynamic I believe) and that I would not be able to start other operating systems from it. I click Yes anyway.
Now Disk C is labeled Crash Dump when it was previously labeled as a Primary Partition. And the header bar by Disk 0 is now green rather than blue (I think it was blue).
New Volume (F
is the new volume I created.
I tried system restore but this computer has only been running for an hour and we have not created any restore points yet.
Any suggestions? Am I actually on the right track? Am I screwed? If so what should I do?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
