Re: Space conflict between two partitions

Hi Fiona,
Thanks for the explanation.

My question was why I was seeing the Logical and Extended partitions after I changed the Logical partition to Primary. And why do I only see it if after I quit certain menu sections?

Is this due to the "perfect" partition table again?

Re: Space conflict between two partitions

Okay but I no longer have a Logical partition. I changed the Logical partition to be Primary to solve the issue of the two partitions fighting for space. This is why I'm confused as to why it's showing up again. Especially when I only see it when I quit out of the menu section to write the partition...

Re: Space conflict between two partitions

I changed the system partition to be the Bootable partition and made the recovery partition Primary. I'm now able to boot into Windows. And I'm able to see the Data Partition and assign it a drive letter. Finally! Thank you for your help. A few questions still though. Just to help me understand a bi...

Re: Space conflict between two partitions

I've made the partition primary. This fixed the partition table as expected.
It wasn't really what I wanted to do but at the moment I cannot see me wanting a 5th partition any time soon.

This still hasn't fixed my missing bootmgr.

I'm going to try to rebuild it using my Windows 7 DVD.

Re: Space conflict between two partitions

Sorry Fiona, I was still typing when you posted.
I'm confused about why you say the Ext LBA doesn't matter. There are two partitions fighting for space over the disk.
One of them needs to be deleted surely?!

Re: Space conflict between two partitions

I've taken the drive out and plugged it into another machine. Voila! I can see all 4 partitions, it automatically assigns a drive letter to all of them and I can browse and copy files with no issue. I've downloaded 6.13 as I couldn't find 6 as you suggested. Again I'm shown the below: Partition Star...

Re: Space conflict between two partitions

Thanks but I'm still unsure as to how I'm supposed to fix it.

Any ideas how to get round the permissions errors?

And before writing the table to dialog shows me the Ext LBA again. How do I put my table right?

Re: Space conflict between two partitions

Hi Remy, Thanks for your reply. After the quick search I'm given the second section I mention above. When I hit Enter to continue I can see the Ext LBA again. Partition Start End Size in sectors 1 * HPFS - NTFS 0 32 33 828 194 6 13312000 [Recovery] 2 P HPFS - NTFS 828 194 7 867 1 30 614400 [System] ...
