You can add that 201 to C using Partition Wizard bootable disk if you decide you can't live with it.

Windows Disk Management can't do it because the unallocated space is shown as being to the left of C. It must be to the right for WDM to do the job.

I'm getting an SSD soon and planning to reinstall Windows to the new SSD.
Do all these steps in cmd etc really needed? On HDD, I usually just use the graphical wizard to delete all partition (if there's any), create a single new partition. It will make a system reserved and a new partition, and then I just click next on the new partition to start the installation.

Can I do it like that, or should I follow the steps on this thread? What's the benefits in doing so?

Thanks in advance, any help would be greatly appreciated

Well mate the choice is yours personally with a brand new drive I just install on it I don't bother with any prep.I use to use the prep in whereby you align the drive up beforehand to have an initial 100MB partition but found I was making more mistakes than not.

What is an average lifespan of a SSD?

It's not the average you have to worry about. The average of 1, 100, and 100 is 67, but that's deceptive. If those numbers represented the human lifespan in years, you wouldn't be too excited about your chances, because one in three never lives to be 2 years old--despite the 67 average.

If you could stipulate that you would never have problems related to controllers, firmware, or connectors, you'd have a very high chance of it lasting many years under typical usage.

But you can't stipulate to any of those things. A certain percentage will fail long before the memory cells develop problems---if your number comes up, there's nothing you can do about it.

Hello, I am installing Windows 7 onto a friend's laptop because he had some problems when he attempted to do so. I have no prior experience or much knowledge, so all your help is greatly appreciated. First I went into the bios to get the system to boot from a disk, otherwise it would go to set up only when powered on. Next, I placed the disk that has the Windows 7 program in the drive and got started. When the windows screen popped up, I pressed shift F10 to follow the instructions posted in this thread via disk part
I entered:
diskpart, list disk, select disk 0, clean, create partition primary size = 60000, select partition 1, active , format fs=ntfs
This is when I encountered the incorrect response it read, 0 percent completed, Diskpart has encounteredan error: The parameter is incorrect. See the System Event Log for more information.
Could you please tell me what I should do from here? I can't figure it out,, Thank you.
