Interesting, I am curious what went on with your partitioning.

How did you get 2 logical drives and free space ?

There was only 1 logical drive before.

How does it look now going left to right?

If you had not just deleted the recovery partition - it should still have 4 as above - The second partition would contain 7 and still say Active.

It looks a bit different from the partition wizard but when i deleted Vista which was D i copied WIN7 into the unallocated space and was still left with 39gbs of space which i thought was weird but meh

As for the logical one i changed some after all the rest failed in the vain hope it would work,i now have 2 primary and 1 logical.

Unallocated (recover partition 11.72 GB) -/- Windows 7 64bit (125.34gb)-/- Unallocated (Ex System partiton, 39.41 GB ?) -/- Data (163.95GB) -/- Windows 7 64bit (125.34GB)

The first windows 7 partiton is Active.

All the rest are status "none".

The first Win7 and Data partition are primary.

The rest are logical.

Curious - rt click the first 11.72gb partition and see what options it gives - look under Modify on the rt click menu as well.
