Windows 7: Memory Full

You may as well download the rest of the stuff HP has at that site for your particular PC.

You may not need it or even want it, but just in case, now is the time to get it rather than later.

If you do a clean install, you will get a bunch of drivers directly from the install disc and you may not need much or anything from the HP downloads.

I'd probably try the HP recovery as a last resort before a clean install---if you don't get any further assistance in this thread.

When you get that Windows 7 ISO downloaded and burned, you should confirm that you can in fact boot from it. If you can't boot from it, it's useless. If it boots, you can cancel out at the first screen, remove the disc from the DVD drive, and reboot to your current installation.

If you figured out your exact model number, you may as well add it to your system specs.

I'll download all. I am not sure about boot but once I have the disk I may need help for clean installing

These steps have worked without fail countless times so you must have a bad burn of the CD. Try again:

The problem is that you converted your HD to Dynamic which is only meant to be used to span a partition across multiple HD's. Apparently you didn't see the warning message.

The solution to solve this non-destructively is to boot free Partition Wizard CD version 4.2 which is the last one which offers this as a free feature: pw422.zip ISO - Windows Live.

Download the ISO, rightclick to burn it to CD using Windows Image Burner, or use ImgBurn.

Boot CD, follow these steps: How to convert dynamic disk to basic disk with Partition Wizard?

Then create a new Logical partition in the space you made: Partition Wizard Create Partition Video Help

Thanks gregrocker. I re-download file and burn to new disc. It worked. I convert my hard drive (Disk 0) to basic space using version PW4.22

After that I run PWv7.6 and converted to all partition to Logical Space. After that Windows 7 didn't start. So I converted system to primary partition > restart pc and Windows 7 started.

I do not know if I do it right or wrong! Do i need to convert C: to primary drive and change status to active?

Thanks ignatzatsonic, I downloaded all drivers and I have everything ready now. I may not need it now but I have it if I need in future

To keep HP System and Recovery bootable they should remain Primary partitions, while C can be converted to Logical then shrunk to add as many adjacent Logical partitions as you want with PW CD.
Partition Wizard Move/Resize Partition Video Help.
How to set partition as Primary or Logical.

Some other options to consider with HP are to get rid of the huge load of crapware and useless HP utilities by doing a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Until then you can Clean Up Factory Bloatware

C should not be active, so it is OK.

The System partition is active as it should be.

The Recovery partition should NOT be logical. It needs to be primary.

C and G can remain logical.

Stay with it. You almost have it done.

No, you're fine with System being the only partition marked as active.

Thanks Greg, I have done factory boltware clean up. It's great. I see my Computer starts up quicker and performing faster...
I am not confident that I will able to do clean re installation by my self. I am thinking to hold it for a while.
