There's no such thing as an unallocated partition. By definition, a partition is allocated space. Unallocated space is just that -- space not assigned to any partition.

You can add it to any partition with Partition Wizard. But given that this is such a tiny space, I would leave it alone.

i dont know why this unallocated is small. but, caused that, i can't do dualboot because i can't do create swap! to make swap i need that partition (unallocated (100mb)) deleted or add it to other partition. the maximum partition is 4, right?

The maximum primary partitions is 4 or 3 primaries and 1 extended. Look into Disk Management and see how many primaries you have. In Computer you may not see that because there may be hidden partitions that you see only in Disk Management.

But in any case, you said the 100MB is unallocated. That is not a partition. Best is you post a picture of your disk management so that we can verify what the situation is. I would not want you to run into dynamics (which would be very bad).
