30 Apr 2012   #1

windows ultimate 32 bit
Disk at Id 0 on bus 0 on atapi

I wanted to change partitions and make new partitions and then instal OS , but I saw a unpartitioned space (8189MB) and I couldn't delete it
my HDD is maxtor 500 SATA

I saw two sentences in setup

476938 MB Disk at Id 0 on bus 0 on iastor
unpartitioned space 476938 Mb

8190 MB Disk at Id 0 on bus 0 on atapi
unpartitioned space 8189 Mb

What is your solution for my problem?
How can I delete it and merge it to the other partition?

my motherboard is P5Q (asus)
