how to get rid of Unallocated partition


So I installed windows7 and all ran smoothly

but I found a 9MB unallocated disk space

the problem is that when I run the computer it gives me 2 choices: 1- to enter unallocated space
2- to get in windows 7

so I have to choose the 2nd choice always to startup the computer

knowing that I couldn't extend the C:

here's a snapshot:

You can't get rid of unallocated space that small. If you try to add it to the partition, it probably won't let you do that due to alignment issues.

What do you mean "when I run the computer"? Do you mean when you cold start it (power it on)?

hi and thanks for ur time

When I turn on the computer, windows 7 will not load and page shows up asking me to choose between 2 choices:

Earlier windows version (Unallocated)
Windows 7

and I can't expand C: to add the unallocated

in the past, it once happened to me and someone told me how to get rid of the unallocated easily without any programs but I just lost the way to it
