OK run Partition Wizard, rightclick Win7>Resize, then only drag the left border all the way over to the left side of the HD. OK.

Apply, see if it completes. Post back screenshot.

I think you're good.

You need to run ChkDsk given earlier to make sure nothing was messed up during partitioning. This will save you problems later. If it shows clean, then you did really good.

Can you remember how to reimage the HD using your DVD, from that Backup partition you made? If so, you'll never have to reinstall again.

Post another topic if you want to troubleshoot the sleep issue. It is likely related to the last step you took before it started being a problem again. It was waking fine before that, right?

You have learned more about advanced install and partitioning in the past 24 hours than 99% of people on earth.

I think that PW didn't want that space to the left of your Backup partition used for WIn7.

That's why it failed twice. Nothing you did.

You could recover it into Backup if you want to have more room there. It is pretty cramped.

Remember to run Chkdsk. schedule it for when you go out by right clicking C drive in Computer >Properties>Tools>error checking>check now>tick both boxes>schedule.

It will sort out any file system errors to reassure you that your HD is in order.

See if you can extend C volume now in Disk Mgmt.

Be sure to highlight the volume in the "Selected" box like here:

I'm not sure what that Free Space is about. If C won't extend, see if you can rightclick delete the Free Space and try again.
