Thanks again. It is a excellent write up.

Hi everyone,

Sorry to bump this thread again after almost 2 moths, but I have to say that the info in this thread are really helpful. And I have to say thanks first to the author of it.

But I have noticed in the provided example that there is some unallocated space at the beginning of the HD with a size of 1 MB just before the first primary partition and there is also another unallocated space of 1.52 MB inside the extended partition which separates the Windows systems files from Linux.
My question: Is there a benefit from leaving that space like protecting the beginning of the HD for example or it was just there by mistake? so what is the purpose of the 2 spaces?

And again sorry to bump the thread again.
regards

Hello messitnt, welcome to Windows Seven Forums!

Thanks for your kind words, and taking time to let us know you found the site helpful.

As to your question, I believe what you are seeing is a result of what is called "Partition Alignment". Windows does this on purpose during the installation of Windows 7, for example. I was not able to find a simple explanation for you, but I would suggest you Google "Partition Alignment" as I did and read up on the topic to your satisfaction.

Cheers!
