You don't delete unallocated space, can you post a screenshot of your disk management window.

then i may do it
if not.. im not gonna bother..
its just not worth the tortue
I added to my post above.

Why are you trying to do this then?
because a netbook is slow
ubuntu is faster os than windows 7


so i want a dual booting netbook
one for speed
other for all the software that only windows runs




by the way.. i didnt REALISE it would be torture til after i tried it of course.

and now ive shrunk my windows 7, for no reason..
probly made th ewhole shystem less stable than it was b4
all for nothing
so how do i delete that uneccesary unallocated hdd space i made?
thanks

so i want a dual booting netbook
one for speed
other for all the software that only windows runs


nevermind
ive had enuff
thanks very much for trying to help

i'll wait til people make this stuff easier to do
til then, im not gonan bother.
i suspect windows 7 will make things easier..
and ubuntu will do it about 10 years after

ubuntu is a great, smooth os.. but its kind of rubbish too
not enuff software support..
and often has problems installing drivers etc..
it kind of runs more like a beta if u ask me
It's still going to be a netbook no matter what you put on it, just leave it alone and come back when you are fresh and we'll help you out.

Yes it worked, hang on a second ok.

This is the tutorial I'm going to use to help you Partition or Volume - Extend

have a look at it and let me know when you're ready, we're just going to recover your unallocated space back into your windows 7.

you might need to post more screenshots too, are you ready?

its ok
i managed to do it
was easy
i didnt need to do everything on that page
just the first method

tho i have a few queries
1. in my c drive, why does it say 'crash dump'? (see pic) is that normal or sum error?
2. why does it also say i have a dvd drive fitted, when i havnt?


thanks

it doesn't help if edit your post, I am waiting for a new response.

Glad you got it fixed, I'm not sure why it says you have a a dvd drive, but the crash dump is just part of the OS.

sorry about that

wasnt trying to be rude

i always think if i edit my psot, people may miss the new edit..
coz they may not recheck old posts.


as for the crash dump.. maybe its when my computer wouldnt start up after i tried to instal ubuntu..
then it went into sum scan mode to try to fix itself
it took so long, i assumed it maty have crashed, so i removed the battery so it woud turn off, then i restarted, and it seemed ok
but maybe thats wat this 'crash dump' is
taking up a bit of memory i guess

Actually that was my fault, So I'm sorry, I thought you edited your first post like you did earlier, we just posted at the same time.

So are you feeling better now?
