Windows 7: Merging Unallocated Space to Primary Partition

Merging Unallocated Space to Primary Partition

I was just wondering how I can merge my unallocated space on my hard drive to my primary partition. Is there any way I can do this? I've seen some solutions online but I haven't seen anything quite similar to what I have.

I have a screenshot of the situation. Thanks for any help.

Is there anyway I could use a third party software like EaseUS Partition Master? Would I "resize" the primary partition over the unallocated space because I am able to do that on that software, but I'm not sure if that is supposed to work.

What steps would I take to merge that unallocated space to my primary partition if I were to use MiniTool Partition?

Download and burn free Partition Wizard bootable CD to CD with WIndows Image Burner or ImgBurn.

Boot CD, rightclick on C to Resize, drag left border all the way to the left, if desired drag the right border to make the partition the size you want, click OK, then Apply. Partition Wizard Resize Partition Video .

In the rare case where resizing on the boot sector causes Windows 7 to fail to boot, boot into PW again, click on Windows 7 HD to highlight it, from Disk tab run Rebuild MBR, click OK, Apply. Partition Wizard Rebuild MBR Video

If this fails to start Windows 7 then boot into Windows 7 DVD or System Repair Disk to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots until Windows 7 starts.
