    Default Partitioning Help

    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?

    lol no, I had no knowledge that it would come like this. Idk if I misread a review or what, because I don't remember anyone mentioning anything about it.

    edit: computer clearly does not want me fucking around with UEFI settings

    Stated in OP that this method won't work, which is why i asked for an alternative. My computer won't let me boot linux from a usb or cd because windows versions after 8 has a UEFI setting that prevents you from doing that.

    Dear god.

    What model is your computer/motherboard?

    You have to disable secureboot and change another setting to boot from non-uefi devices.

    What?? You missed something then. This method works for windows all the time. Go change your permissions to admin. Run as admin and you should be golden. Also follow all the steps or it will fail.
    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?

    Read the thread again and quit acting so condescending. It's not a permissions issue, it's a setting in the BIOS, and clearly he has one drive partioned as two, not two separate drives. http://prntscr.com/8iib5r
