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.
