Windows 7: how can i make my other partition bootable?

24 Feb 2011   #21


SIW i am trying to use EASYBCD2.1. but i am still unsuccessfull because of that i dont have enough space nor even F: drive is my primary drive.
it is not letting allow me to write BCD or MBR because of logical disk.

moreover i am trying to transfer my Drive data on my other machine but it will take some extra time.

Since you are trying to overwrite C anyway, delete the files you left there which you don't want to save to another partition or externally.

You'll need to move the data off of one or more of the Logical drives before Partition Wizard will convert F to Primary partition needed to boot with PLoP. Use EasyBCD 2.02 from here:

Do you wish to save the Recovery partition? Have you made the disks? It contains the System MBR but Win7 may not write them there in a clean reinstall, it will lose its link to the OS and may not run Factory Recovery at boot - same with the OEM partition which will lose its functionality. And what is "I" partition which is marked Active - cannot see it on the map:

thanks Greg.

No i didnt switched computers. The snapshot was mistakenly from my 2nd machine.

Awesome EasyBCD made my life too much easy. Now flash disk is enabed for booting. I have been run a clean install successfully.

but now i dont know what happened with my 3rd drive. I just deleted the VOlumne and then created its volume but it is displaying an error mesage.

what should i do now? i couldnt delete it during installation through booting.

please see.

One thing more, when i tried to create a new voulme according to provided web reference then that drive became logical not primary.

why is it so?

How can i increase the size of my C drive now?

Use free Partition Wizard bootable CD, rightclick C>Resize, drag right grey border to the right to take up the Free Space, OK. Apply all steps.

What wiped all of your HD except C?

If you are saying that while trying to extend C into the adjacent Logical Free Space using Partition Wizard, it deleted all but your C partition then that is quite impossible. You were only touching your C partition.

Which partition has been deleted, and have you backed up the data?

no no. i am not saying this.

I have been made a mistake myself, i wiped partition on unallocated space. so that 's why it made it.

Did you back up the data on the partition? Do you want to Resize C into it?

If not, run the Partition Recovery Wizard on the Wizard tab at top of PW.
