Thread: Partitioning Help
09-13-2015, 05:15 PM #1
Simple question with a hopefully simple answer:
My hdd came partitioned out of the box, I would like to either add some more to the (C:) drive or merge them completely. I have tried deleting (D:) but it wouldn't allow me to add any of the bytes into (C:) afterwards. Is it possible to do this? If so any ideas how?

Boot Linux from thumb drove and partition with gparted.
Can't edit the partition system is using in Windows, anyone should know that.

LMFAO DID THEY SELL YOU A PC AND SAY IT HAD TWO DRIVES?
Or did you buy a bare drive and install it yourself?

What model is your computer/motherboard?
You have to disable secureboot and change another setting to boot from non-uefi devices.

And UEFI booting linux is one of the easiest things to do. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI But you don't need linux to solve your problem. Just need to follow instructions.
Your issue is more than likely a permissions issue. Just escalate your permissions and you should be good to go. If not follow the UEFI boot set up for linux and set up dual boot. If you take note of your screenshot in the OP you would realize you in fact missed a very important step. (D: is still NTFS formatted instead of unallocated) Missing simple steps along the way will make a seemingly easy task very difficult.
And even I miss steps sometimes. Your D drive say hdd2 and your c drive says hdd. You have 2 hard drives. You can't merge the two different drives together.
Just cannot happen. Sorry dude. Are there two operating systems on this computer? Or just two hard drive storage?
