    Windows system partitions wierdness [​IMG]

    My SSD (D: drive) used to have ~900GB of space, a few months ago I tried to dual boot linux mint with windows 10 however after hours of attempts it would not boot to linux and would only boot to windows. I deleted linux mint by formatting the partition it was stored on (the unallocated one) however when I attempted to merge it back with the rest of my SSD it refused as the 512 MB Healthy EFI system partition is between them. How can I fix this?

    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

    Resize Windows 10 System Partition

    Hi Adrain,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern, and we in Community will try to help you in the best possible way we can.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if that helps.

    • Run Disk Management. Open Run Command (Windows button +R) a dialog box will open and type "diskmgmt.msc".
    • In the Disk Management screen, just right-click on the partition that you want to shrink, and select “Extend Volume” from the menu
    • Locate your system partition — that’s probably the C: partition. Right-click on it and select “Shrink Volume.” If you have multiple partitions on your hard drive, you could also choose to resize a different partition to free up space.

    Hope the information helps. Please let us know if the issue persist and we will be happy to assist you further.
