Unallocated space can't be used.

You must make a partition from the unallocated space and then format the partition. Then you can use the space.

You should be able to make a partition by right clicking the unallocated space.

Partition disk 0

Hi all, i need help to finish up partition of HD. I shrinked space then went ahead to create new simple volume with help of the wizard. On finishing the prompt indicates that i want to chang the disk space to dynamic disk, which i don't remember doing, also the disk is labelled disk 0. Any ideas?

Post a picture of your disk management screen.

I wouldn't worry about disk 0, but "dynamic disk" is something you normally should avoid.

You probably have a bunch of partitions, but we need a picture to sort it out.
