Sorry I did not acknowledge them, I did read them.

IF, you have a repair disk or an Install disk, take a chance and delete the 100MB partition. It is not active, is not listed as the system drive and is a FAT32 partition. I don't believe it has anything to do with booting Windows 7. If it will not boot, run startup repair at least 3 times or until the system boots.

No Bill, his AS SSD numbers were not good for his drive, his winsat disk was great, There was obviously some disconnect between winsat disk and WEI and AS SSD. He reset WEI, did everything all of us could think of, but it appears for some reason, WEI and AS SSD was running on the 96MB partition he had. WEI will not run on less than 1GB. I've never seen or heard of this. Apparently there was some issue with the way he installed Windows. We're trying to fix it.

I right clicked on E: to delete volume, it did not work.
Now says it is Unallocated.

By saying Unallocated, it means you deleted what was on the partition.

Use Partition wizard Partition Wizard : Use the Bootable CD Just follow the directions, but anytime you mess with the windows partition, there is a risk. If done correctly, there should be no problem, but there is a risk. If you still have problems, I will help you reinstall, but Greg will fuss at me.

Dude, I believe disk management will only extend to the right. He will need to extend to the left. Partition wizard will do it.

Bootable Partition Wizard.
