Hey all- I have 4 partitions on my hard drive,3 primary,and 1 logical. I need to know how to change that logical Partition to a Primary so i can boot from it. I found a couple of software programs on the internet,but they are about 40-50 bucks. Anyone know how I can do this with some free software? I hope this is the right forum - if not -please advise!! Thanks!!

Thanks Nick Au- No - I had to do it from the Windows side, I found a website called TweakHomePC- that gave me detailed instructions on how to do it using Diskpart in Windows- pretty cool site for dual booters. Anyway - I got the 4 partitions to all be primary,but my triple boot idea with Win7/Zorin/Mintmate still isnt working. Easy BCD doesn't boot Mint- even though it shows up in the bootloader----!?
