Unable to format hard disk
by gang425 - 8/8/12 12:52 AM
I have bought a new laptop (DOS installed) and trying to install windows7
After i installed windows 7, i can see only 30 gb drive in "My computer" (500 gb hard disk)
When iam trying to create new volume in disk management on unallocated space
iam getting a prompt that "this action will convert the disk to dynamic disk"
when i proceeded with clicking ok i get an error message saying "Not enough space on the disk to perform the operation"
Even in the windows installation screen iam unable to select the unallocated space and format.
I can see the options "format", "delete" disabled for the partitions
I can see the options enabled for only few partitions.
This is a brand new laptop with DOS installed and iam installing the windows for first time.
Can anyone tell me what might be the problem for this and how can i partition the hard disk and format ?
Thanks in advance.
