  1. Created Partitions Inaccessible to User Accounts?


    Got new PC w/Windows 10, Office 365, etc. Created 2 other non-admin user accts. Partitioned the C: drive, adding D:, E:, F: and G: of equal sizes. Question: How come even in Admin user acct, I cannot in cmd-window do a change-dir cd from C: to any of the other partitions? What's preventing me from doing a simple cd-cmd? Why?

    :)

    W7 Hard drive partition issue

    to get rid of that 100 meg windows partition that setup creates for you on a new install on a blank hdd:

    - press shift+f10 when on the partition management screen in setup <-- this opens a command prompt
    - diskpart <-- start the windows command line partition management tool
    - list disk <--- list the installed hdds in this computer for the next step
    - select disk 0 <- might have to replace 0 with the number of the correct disk
    - clean <-- this will erase all data on the disk you selected one step up- dont use the wrong disk!
    - create partition primary <- creates a primary partition taking up all space on the drive, adjust the command if necessary
    - exit, exit to exit diskpart and the command prompt
    - click refresh in partition manager and select your newly created partition and install to that

    • Are you logged in with a Microsoft account or Local account?

    • Are you trying to create new user account using Administrator account?
    I suggest you to run SFC scan.
