Yes sir. That's looks perfect. Job well done.

It's a lighter blue bar (logical partition) since after you have 3 primary partitions (Dk blue/Navy), the rest will be logical. This is normal.

Thanks

So, now I came back. Shrinking the volume didn't help at all because my computer got stuck all the time when my windows was on slave disk. Now I know that S-ATA hard drives don't have the jumpers and thats why I didn't find them but they can be changed from bios (not in my case) or they are in wrong positions on motherboard (there is exact place for the channel 0 master and slave etc.). You must think I'm an idiot. Well at least I feel like one. So I changed the cables on the motherboard and got it fixed but now my windows hard drive might be corrupted because it makes the unexpected i/o error before it boots and everything on the windows hard drive is slow (like when I go to a folder with pictures, it might take almost a minute to create the icons). And about an hour ago when I restarted the computer I got the I/O error and did a startup repair with windows repair disk and in the diagnostics there was something like this: "Root cause (or error) corrupted windows volume (i don't remember the error code) fixed" and immitietly then it started.

Thanks Shawn for these great advices. I'll just buy a new hard drive before some testing and thats all.

Hello Travelizard, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If all you did was shrink the C: partition and create a new partition with the unallocated space in Disk Management, then I'm not sure why you would be getting this. Did you make any other changes that you know of?

Try booting from you Windows 7 installation disk to run a Startup Repair to see if that may be able to help.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

OK, I put my windows 7 installation disk in the cd/dvd drive, and how I say to him not to install win7 but just to do the Startup Repair?
