All right, I downloaded the minitool partition manager and was successfully able to resize my windows partition. Now how can I tell which partition is my Master Boot Record? I think my issue with my computer booting up incorrectly has to do with that. Also, if all I have on my HDD is my 450GB windows installation, what other types of partitions should I have other than unallocated? Just the Master boot record, correct?
Attached is a screen shot of my partition setup.
Thank you for your help
