On one of my computers I have the following situation on the only HDD:
- * Unallocated 1.00 MB Logical None
- * : System Reserved NTFS 100.00 MB Primary System
- C : Win 8.1 NTFS 458.54 GB Primary Boot (over 350 GB Free)
- * Unallocated 1.64 MB Logical None
- F : Data NTFS 240.00 GB Logical None
I want to create a new partition of about 30 GB and install Windows 10 on that and not upgrade Win 8.1 to Windows 10 from the update. I will dual boot so that I can test the new system before installing it for keeps as a new installation and not as an upgrade. I don"t overtly prize upgrades and I do want to retain Windows 8.1 as long as possible.
I can take the required space from the C: Win 8.1. Now are these two diminutive ragamuffin Unallocated spaces of any consequence? Can I delete them or move or merge these into C:\ and then create a partition from that.
How do I go about that.. ? ( I have AOMEI Partition Manager if that is any good or please suggest a freeware application where I don't need a PHD first to operate it!)
Thanks for some tips.
