Never had to do anything after the last run on PW. Could not ask for it to run any smoother.

hi SIW2

Please could you help me about partition in my HP Pavilion, windows 7 started?. I have 240 gb in C (OS) but i have 03 more partition (Recovery, HP Tools, and System) .
With partition wizard I can shrink my C partition until 40 gb (it is i want) and the 200 gb became in "Unallocated space" but in this unallocated space I could´t create a new partition. The massage is "There no a MBR slots on the disk"...what can I do?

I want to create a new partition with my 200 gb to put My Documents here and separate fron the C (OS).

Thanks
Regards

Are you running Partition Wizard from the boot CD?

edit: It sounds like what happened is you already have 4 primary partitions. That's the max. There's only 4 spaces in the MBR partition table. You need to convert(usually the last) one to an extended partition. Then inside that you can make many logical partitions.

I have Partition Wizard but I haven't used it yet. I'd look for a forum on their site for particular things about using their software. Just be careful when you convert a primary to an extended you don't lose your data. You may want to make backups of everything first.

The limit is 4 primary partitions. You need to change one of the primary partitions into an extended partition. See this article:

Change partition type between logical and primary without data losing.

Hi,

That is a little awkward.

If you alter one of the oem partitions ( recovery or tools) you likely won't be able to access it.

You could make the C partition into your "System" partition, then delete the 100 mb partition.

You would then have a free slot.

You can do it with this.

Hello to all!I'm italian so first of all I apologise for my english.
I bought a notebook HP dv6 2135sl with W7 and I have the same problem.

The partitions are all primary and the order is the sequent:
C (450GB)
hp tool (99MB)
recovery (16GB)
sistem (199MB)

I would like to decrease C until 50GB and create two other partitions: J (Programmes 150GB) and K(Data 250GB). Is it possible? I understood that I have to change one of the 4 partitions into extended. Which one is the best?Can I use only PM or I need the operation that SIW2 was starting describing a week ago?How?
Thank you to all!!!!!!

hi...just want to share my experience, after i am reading all comments for this thread. i can use partition wizard, and the maximum dirve are 2 (C and D, 2 others are for system and HP_Tools, my laptop is HP DV6-3127DX).

I have faced a same problem before like huffman on last sept 2009,

Again everything was as it should be so I click Apply and got this:



and this message comes up because I pass the maximum limit of shrink volume for drive C. then I just change the shrink volume, it is working. before I have C 440GB, D 20GB, now C 230GB, D 230GB

You have to jiggle it about a bit, decreasing first whilst using the option where to place the now unallocated space. In your case 'before'.

Then work backwards until you have the unallocated spaces after the C:\. Then you can enlarge the C:\

Bit fiddly and time consuming but can be done.
