    Default How to unpartition harddrive

    Does anyone know how to unpartition or any unpartitioning software I can use. I tried on Windows using the Disk Management tool in the Computer Manager by deleting the partition and then extending the volume, but when I tried this I got a an error saying that "Dynamic disks are not supported by the operating system"

    By using the windows xp/vista/ windows 7 or windows 98 CD whatever one you got

    But this will delete you information on your hardrive

    it will work same with what I said except you choose the external hard drive instead of your windows one

    Just make sure you not selecting the wrong hardrive

    I've done it with flash disk's and external hardrives before so it works fine

    Use a linux live disk(ubuntu gparted live, knoppix, etc) boot up, start gparted gui and do it, shouldn't lose anything really...

    Unless something unusual happens

    Hirens Boot CD has Partition Magic which I used successfully to move partitions around - even if Windows is on it.
