That wasn't going to happen

i just used the best option to keep them separate

@ThrashZone, I don't quite understand the comment and don't want to go off topic here. If you want to Testdrive or install Linux you can do so easily if your drives are setup properly. I'm just new to the SSD thing, otherwise Linux installs really easily Manually or like you stated Along Side. But if your partitions are not setup properly it won't work as "Along Side" and may damage your system.

Hi,
I don't know really your partitions look like a unlabeled mess to me

The DM screen print in post #8 does not show all the info.
You should at least resize the Status column to display all info.
Here are instructions for posting a maximized/resized DM screen print to show all info:
Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

From what i can see in Post #8 it looks like you do have more than 4 primary partitions, and more

From what i know OverProvisoning uses Unallocated space, not a partition.
Others can correct me, but i don't think your 10 GB partition at the end of the drive does what you want.

The drive where Windows is installed does not need to be Primary, it can be Logical.
The drive that has the bootloader does need to be Primary.

In your case the bootloader is on the System Reserved partition - that MUST be Primary.
In your case Windows is installed on C -that CAN be Logical.
In DM the System, Active partition shows where the bootloader is - it MUST be Primary.
In DM the Boot partition shows where Windows is installed, it CAN be Logical.

I can't comment on installing Linux on the same drive with Windows.
I've read many people have problems.
You know much more than me.

If i want to add Linux as a bare metal multi-boot, i would install it on a separate drive.
I run Linux as a VM, under Windows.

Hi,
That is correct David
Over provisioning reserves space on the same partition or at least that is what samsumg magician says it wants
Otherwise as long as you have extra space is all that is required one does not have to use Over provision you just need I believe 20% unused of what is occupied.
I usually keep 40% unused which is well more than required.

Thanks Mike !
That's pretty much what i do, i never let OS partitions get anywhere as low as 20% free space, on a SSD.
Data partitions on spinners, i push it, somehow i always fill those up and sometimes see the 10% warning.

Thanks so much guys, that was all very good info! I don't know what I did lol, so will go back to the Drawing Board. If this were a Spinner would have been done easily. I will post a better screenshot of Drive Manager. I just looked, Seven Primary Drives lol, how the heck is this thing even working lol. I think that is not correct because they were created with gparted. I'll have to work this out and report back.

No Linux is on SSD with W7, that is a USB Storage device.
I am going to do this the way I always have on HDD's and forget the instructions I was given. I've now seen others doing it the Standard way, so will regroup and reinstall. I post back with findings.
