No, it's fine - it is only removing the partition table entry for the first one he selected - you can't have both taking up the whole drive.

How do I make sure that?
Can you see see the files listed in the partition manager?
Looks like they're there. Yup. I see my videos. It says on the home page I have 68.85 GB used. Sounds about right. So is it safe to just restart manually? Or is there a better way?

Alrighty then...this has been a bit of a learning experience for myself as well...

Can he just reboot into Windows?

I right clicked on it and it wasn't active. Set it to active. It was also set as "partition as logical" - should I change it to primary? Or leave it as "logical"

Hang on . If it allowed to Mark Active - it must be Primary already.

It is asking if you want to change it to Logical.

No - leave it as Primary.

Does it say ACTIVE, SYSTEM &BOOT?

If so, close PW.

Restart.

Okay, I set the "partition as primary". I clicked close and it said all pending crap will be lost, do you still wanna quit?

Yes? haha

When I right clicked, it was set as inactive and logical. I first set it to primary then set it to active too.
