Greetings everyone! I'm a newbie here in SEVEN
I just bought a LENOVO Y580
1TB (notebook) and I'm having difficulties in making partitions in my HDD. Initially, here's the default hard drive partitions:
(hidden): Healthy System
so first, I follow the normal way of making a partition. which is:
• right click on my computer
• disk management
• shrink a desired drive
• right click on the unallocated (make simple volume)
• go through the wizard instructions
• click finish
however, when i hit finish, there's a popup saying:
" The operation you selected will convert the selected basic disk(s) to dynamic disk(s)
. If you convert the disk(s) to dynamic
, you will not be able to start installed operating systems from any volume on the disk(s) (except the current boot volume). Are you sure you want to continue?"
I've been plowing the net in search for help in these matter. so far what i found out is that converting to a dynamic hard drive is a "bad idea" so thats a NO NO
i guess. Also, I saw some forums saying that I should have "Ubuntu live CD" or "GParted" etc... to solve this problem. but i dont want to install additional software.
So my questions are:
1.) Is it possible to make partitions without installing other software?
2.) (If the case is having too much partitions)
Can I delete an existing partition? say, OEM
3.) How do I expand my drive D (Recovery)
4.) How to post a screen shot or images in a thread?
( newbie note hehehehe)
Hope you can enlighten me on this matter. Thanks in advance! Cheers everyone!
