|"Is that 77GB unallocated or partitioned and formatted? What type of partition is it? Logical drive in an extended partition? Primary? What?"|
I'm not quite sure what you mean... I'll try to explain it better. I've got a 140 GB Hard Drive. On it I have a 12 GB Partition that is my Vista OS and Restore. Of the remaining 137 GB, 77 GB is free. I want to take 16-20 of this 77 GB and make a second partition so I can instal Windows 7 as a Dual Boot.
In the Disk Management tool of Vista, my Hard Drive is listed as: C: 137.37 GB NTFS Healthy (System, Boot, Page File, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition).
The Partition with my Vista OS is listed as: PRESARIO_RP (D:) 11.67 GB NTFS Healthy (Primary Partition).
Now after Defragmenting my C: I now have only 1526 MG available to Shrink from C:. Ugh, I just dont know what to do.
