Hi Brink

Hope you can help me. I'm running on a simmilar problem. After installing windows 7 (not the 1st time i did it w/ the same installation disc), i had a 0 MB unallocated space. Not too much of a problem actually, just annoying. Then after i tried to install it again, i had another 0 MB unallocated space..
problem is i can't delete it, even using disc management won't do cause they dont appear on the list.. very frustrated and very tired, sorry if similar question has been posted..thanx so much.

So you want to extend your C partition, and gain the space in the D partition.

Oh, I see.

I could be wrong, but since your system reserve is in tact, then can I suggest you try deleting those empty spaces using a partition editor.

Hello Ursuchascene,

I'm not sure what problem you may be having. I do not see any 0 MB partitions or unallocated space in your Disk Management screenshot. I see that you have 0 free space on your DVD E: drive though.

Haha so it really does pay to do good deeds

Anyway eldinv, i think i've solved it. I'm not into reading last night and decided to play with reformatting and deleting my partitions using the install disc. Then after i tried to install windows 7 again the 0 MB partitions didn't persist anymore. Though i'm afraid i might be seeing these strange partitions in the future.

Hi Brink. My problem was after deleting all partitions making it a single unallocated partitions, a 0 MB unallocated space was made after i made a new 30 GB partition. At first i didn't mind it and went through with installing win 7. Then after i reformatted again and made partitions, another 0 MB unallocated space appeared. That's when it bothered me. My partitions looked like this.

Unallocated Space 0 MB
System Reserve 100 MB
Disc 1 30 GB
Disc 2 80 GB
Unallocated Space 0 MB

It doesn't look exactly like this, just wanted to show how the unallocated space appeared in this step of the installation.
