Default Merge Partitions?



When you right click on it, it says to create a new parition.. I really don't want to do that I just want it to be all one drive.

I guess thats a flaw when you put a generic image of XP Corp. on your hard drive..

I remember working on this a few years ago at tech school using the DIskpart and CMD

You need to present us with a question.

he can move all the files from that partition to the other, delete the partition, then resize the unallocated space to his C Drive. which it seems like its the case.
