Hi, my hard disk is 750 GB, in the disk management I can see only two partitions presently, one is around 650 GB NTFS and another is 8GB-FAt32.

I guess 8Gb is some reserved space, and my win-7 is installed in another drive of 650GB.

So here I want to do partition of 650 GB hard disk.

As suggested by you, I will post the image to get feedback from you and to avoid risk.

thanks

If Disk Management shows only 2 partitions, you would have no problem. But that is unusual for an OEM installation. Usually there is at least another system partition and a recovery partition.

Hello thepankajnegi, welcome to Seven Forums!


As has been suggested post a snip of a maximized Windows 7 disk management for us to look at for you, have a look at this tutorial linked below.

Long Live 7Forum.


PS: You can also try with system restore, make sure you restore it from the day the problem started.
