Do you remember over at your previous Topic I asked a couple of questions? At
I mentioned, in part
If we can see your current partition setup, that may be of assistance. You can call this up, in Windows 8.1, by one of:
Pressing the Windows key and X together and choosing Disk Management or
Use the Run command and type in diskmgmt.msc and press [ENTER] or
If you are familiar with the Command prompt (black screen white text), diskmgmt.msc and press [ENTER]
You can then use the Windows Snipping Tool to capture a screenshot for us.
If you need to know how to post a screenshot in the Linux Section, you can read, at Linux How-To and Tutorial Section, NickAu's Topic “How to post a screenshot Linux style”. Or click
or for more choices in Image Hosting sites, see Moderator Stolen's Post here:
… #2 refers.
... and you were able to post a link to a screenshot of your partitions, which I then reproduced in a later post.
But I hope you also read the links on how to Post, as they are important.
In the later Post, #26, at
... I said, in part -
For the benefit of others, and until the OP gets access to a compatible image hosting site/learns how to post images directly here, I have reproduced below his Windows Disk Management setup:
From the looks of your setup:
- Your HDD is formatted to GPT - The GUID Partition Table, not MBR (Master Boot Record)
- You appear to have perhaps a Western Digital My Book, 4TB in capacity, perhaps not on or connected when you took your Piriform Speccy shot?
Both these elements make for a very, VERY, friendly Linux setup for you.
So what I have done is, perhaps briefly, joined your image posting site, postimg.org, and established that its content IS compatible with Posting screenshots directly to this forum, rather than just links.
Take a look at my screenshot below:
You can see where I have highlighted that field "Direct Link". Right-click in it, select Copy and Enter.
Back in BC, at your "Reply Pane", 2nd line in the toolbar, 11 from the left, icon looks like a picture in a frame.
Click it, paste the URL (internet address), press Enter and the screenshot will appear in your Post.
It doesn't matter if the shot you saved with the Windows snipping tool is .png or .jpg I have tried and both work.
Now you are set to make use of "a picture is worth a 1,000 words"!
Having said all that, can you please now revisit Windows Disk Management, capture a current screenshot of your Partition setup, and post it here?
The OP's specs are here, unless more recently updated:
