Windows 7: Free Space won't form New Simple Volumes

Using the PW boot disk won't require a restart, try that.

As good and reliable a program as Partition Wizard is, I would not trust the installed version for the operation you need, use the boot CD as suggested and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

First download the Partition Wizard Bootable Disk (PWBD) ISO file to the desktop, be sure to get the PWBD and not the installed version; scroll down to see the download link for the Bootable CD ISO file at this link below.

Then use ImgBurn to burn the ISO to a CD, at no greater than 4x speed with a verify; it was designed for use and works best from a CD rather than a DVD; then boot the created CD to make the changes, it doesn't take any input from the user to setup, just relax and let it load.

There is no risk to your C Drive (your operating system and applications) providing you don't highlight the drive when you are carrying out disc management tasks with Partition Wizard.

I guess it affected me more than what you said...i had to use startup diagnosis tool to recover my normal startup...i had no other option left...coz had i choosen to start normally, i would have crashed my OS( ??? )further more, what's the use of such software if it keeps on affecting the startup and i have to go to a system restore point to fix my normal startup problem.?
