Windows 7: two "Unallocated Space" partitions with 0MB

So.. I should just ignore them? I mean, they don't show up in Disk Management, which is weird ain't it?

If you created the partitions during the Windows 7 install, then they are aligned properly.
I would ignor the 0MB.

It is very easy to check the alignment: SSD Alignment

I never really created those two unallocated space partitions. All I wanted is my 100MB system reserved (as I didn't touch a thing, because it's creating itself), my SSD (C and my D: (500GB WD).

A thing I could try.. just for the matter..

Is to format my SDD, delete the Unallocated, and it should be gone as I told. We'll just do it the other way, you see?

I really wonder what the Alignment is, I didn't get the explanation good enough I think, i'll read it through a couple of times

Oh and, thanks!

You cannot create or delete Unallocated space.

It is not a partition, it is not an entity at all. It is a minor reporting error.

It is thin air, not even a dead parrot.

But, "Reporting Errors".. what is it exactly they report? I know I should ignore this and it's fixed and all that, but it's a bit of a mystery why.. yea.. why they're here without my permission!

I am sorry, but I think you are beating a dead horse.

HAHAHAHA I laughed so bad.
Sorry I don't get this partition thingy. I'll just ignore them, and let's get through

Get me right. I want to get a rid of them.

You are chasing a phantom. Maybe it is hiding in one of those http://goscandinavia.about.com/od/historyart/tp/castlesdenmark.htm

That could be an idea! I started to hate all this partition fancy thing.
Lets just format my C: and get 64-bit shall we? Oh, and nice link!
