Major Partitioning Issues.. Read on please..

Specs: Windows 7
I have a major problem with partitioning an HDD. Let's see.. I was just installing win 7 on my newly built PC, and thought it would be a good idea to partition it for 20gb for sys files and the rest for everything else. I did partition the 20gb, but didn't create a new partition for the other half. Now, there's no way to access the rest of the HDD (its 1 TB normally!) and I can't boot my pc from win 7 cd like i did when i did this partitioning. What would you suggest? I think formatting is a good idea but i can't do this unless I boot from the CD.... I'm pretty much stuck!

Just go to Disk Management to find the unallocated space. You can then partition and format it there as desired.

Go to Start Menu> Control Panel> Administrative tools> Computer Management> Storage> Disk Management.

With a hard drive that size you may want to increase the 20GB to say 50GB. You can do that in Disk Management too. First create another partition and format it then perform the resize.
