Greetings. I have already posted my problem on another forum, but then I saw a comment there about this forum being more active ... so, I came on over here also. I have Win98se, 2k, XP, 7 and Linux Mint all on two drives in one machine. I began with two new drives, but I only connected the first one until after the Windows systems had all been installed. I began by using MS FDISK to make the first partition FAT32 for Win98se, then I used 2k's installation options to make a partition for 2k ... and I think that is where my trouble began when 2k could not see all of the 160 GB drive and somehow possibly "marked" the end of the drive as being closer than it actually was. I later patched 2k to see the entire drive, of course, but that has nothing to do with anything here at the moment. After 98se and 2k were in, I used XP's installation options to make a partition for XP and all was well up to that point. But then when I tried to let Win7 make its own partition, the remainder of the drive showed as two pieces, with the first ending at the point I think 2k had earlier and erroneously marked as the end of the drive. At that point, neither 2k nor XP nor the Win7 installation options could make the last 53+ GBs of the drive into one partition, but Easus' "Partition Manager" had no trouble deleting the two pieces and making them into just one for Win7 ... and I then had the Win7 installation options format that last partition just before my Win7 installation ... but now I have this: How can I fix that?! And to be sure I have made this clear: It was that 53.05 GB partition that had been in two pieces prior to my Win7 installation. The now-present "shadow" or whatever of that 53.05 is something that showed up later on (but I do not now recall what I had done at that time to cause it to appear).
