    Moving Unallocated Disk Space to End of Disk


    Was commenting on the pic in post #21. Not suggesting anything. It just looked like the step you were doing was incomplete.

    Partition space

    You're not understanding this. Unallocated space is NOT equal as (partitioned) empty space.

    Unallocated space means empty RAW sectors on HDD. Empty space means an already allocated file system (either FAT32 or NTFS or any other) that is not occupied by any data.

    So in your case, as DanTheBanjoman already suggested, don't try to shrink "unallocated space", extend the main (C*Smile How do i remove efi system partition, unallocated space :) partition instead. You can't shrink something that doesn't exist (unallocated space), but you can extend the existing partition over unallocated space.
    So, just select the C: partition and extend it further. Program should automatically allow you to do that. I'm not using Partition Magic, but i usually done this with either:
    MiniTool Partition Wizard Free - manage and resize disk partitions (also for 64bit OS!)

    or

    EaseUS Partition Master - manage disk partitions (only for 32bit OS!)

    How do i remove efi system partition, unallocated space

    Formating Efi system partition as FAT32

    During an install you can remove all the critical partitions, of which the EFI System partition is one. You do not have to pre-format a drive during an install. Just remove the Critical partitions ( MSR, EFI, Recovery and OS)and leave unallocated space.
    The install will take care of the rest.

    You can delete the partition and use the Diskpart create partition EFI command with qualifiers, if necessary. If you have already created the partition, try using Diskpart from a command prompt (Shift+F10 during the install) and format.

    If you need to convert a drive from MBR to GPT or vice versa, you need to remove ALL partitions.
