Hello Fliint,

You may be able to use METHOD 2 in the tutorial below to create a logical partition with the unallocated space.

Partition / Extended : Logical Drives

Hope this helps,
Shawn

When you click on a partition to create, what are you clicking on?

To one of the Members == There are no partition letters on his Disk Management. Shouldn't this be giving him a problem?

You should follow Brink's advice in post number 2 and use Partition Wizard bootable disc, not Windows Disk Management.

You need to create logical partitions.

Yeah, that is cuckoo also. It needs to be marked C.

Not sure why it is not by default.

True, there should be drive letters for the Windows 7 partition.

@Fliint,

Is it giving you drive letters in the Computer window? If not, then you need to assign C to your 228.87 Go partition.

Does he have 4 primaries on that drive ?

@Flint, you can`t do anything with your operating system partition, leave it alone.

What do you have on the 18 and 10 GB partitions ? Can you delete them ?
