  1. Regarding Disk partition

    Hi all,

    I am trying to Partition my disk in my desktop , i have 2 partitions in my Disk-0 (C-drive and D-drive), i have successfully shrinked my D-drive from disk management and it has created a unallocated space of 20 GB

    When i am trying to create a New partition with the unallocated space i am getting error as The selected GPT formatted disk contains a partition which is not of the type 'PARTITION_BASIC_DATA_GUID', and

    is both preceeded and followed by a partition of type 'PARTITION_BASIC_DATA_GUID' (As per the image1 below i am getting warning while creating the new volume and getting error while creating it as per image2) Regarding Disk partition 5b361289-1d90-4e9d-9acd-f9a5af1f0fe2?upload=true.png Regarding Disk partition c13f053b-9ae3-40f0-9076-135e422edde5?upload=true.png )

    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

  3. Disk management console view is not up-to-date

    i dont know how to fix your disk management, but i can fix your partition problems...

    open up Command Prompt with admin rights. (Right click, run as admin)

    enter in
    list disk

    then find the Disk number for your Raid array... lets call it number 7 ( you can tell what disk is what by the total size)
    type in

    Select Disk 7
    List Partition (will give you a list of all the partitions..)
    Select Partition 1 (im assuming you only have 1 partition on Disk 7) repeat this step if you have more partitions.

    that should get the array up and running ready to use.


    any problems, post back ^^

    Sudden automatic appearance of disk partition on Windows 10


    Please let us know, if you have made any changes prior to this issue.

    I suggest you to remove the partition and check.

    To delete an existing partition from Windows 10:

    • Follow the instructions from step 1 to 5 from the above section.
    • From the right pane of the Disk Management section, right-click the volume (partition) that you want to delete.
    • From the context menu that appears, click Delete Volume.

    Hope this information helps.
