The simplest way would be to reformat as NTFS. Use the advance options to delete and re-create partions.
GPT requires EFI and there is some debate whether Win 7 can be installed. I have not tested yet and quite frankly I would not waste the time and effort. Your hard drive and partition size is well within requirements. Good Luck
The only way to adjust the size of a partition is to reformat the hard drive. You might be able to move some files and programs from C to D to free up some space on C, but that's pretty much your only choice.
no, it is not possible .for partition you have to delete all partions and then you can make diffrent drives of your selected size but you will loose your data....suggestion:- take another hard disk and copy all data to it .. then install the new windows and recopy all the data back to the first hard disk
Not quite sure if the partion is the primary or secondary. If it is secondary and you are running Vista, go into the Admin Tool in the Control Panel, select Computer Management, select Disk Management under the Storage tab. Select the partion you want to erase from the bottem partion of the screen, right click on the partion, and choose Delete Volume.
If you are deleting the primary, you will need to use the upgrade function to get a clean deletion of the old info.
If you're trying to format this drive, and you have nothing on it you want, then I would suggest that you use a windows 98 boot disk HERE. And first thing you need to do is load dos by putting the floppy disk in your drive A: after you create it from that site of course. Then allow dos to boot up. I'd opt for the allow cd rom option when it asks. After you get a dos prompt A: type in fdisk. Go to the display partions section and see what your drive is partioned as? Once you find that out, I'd delete the partion from the main menu choice delete partion. After that create a new partion from the main menu. Creating a new Dos partion will allow you to choose the size of the partion you want, then after that it will create your new Dos partion. When that's done, exit fdisk, and go to the A: prompt and type in format c: This will format the drive all over again, and give you a clean fresh starting point in which you install your OS.
check it on the bios the size of your hard disk, if its 80 gb then go to the control panel after booting open the administrative tools, open computer management, then select disk management, check the hard disk there, if there is an unpartitioned space , then convert it to the partioned space
you have to format drives d, e and f. Go to my computer;then right click on the raw drive (d,for this instance); click format, disk capacity and allocation sizes will be shown; select either quick format or full format. You may also compress the disk. Do the same for drives E and F. Formatting may take a few minutes depending on the size of the drive.Hope this helps.
