I installed Windows XP Professional on my old HP m370n media center PC. I could not do a factory restore, the only way to get it working was to delete the HP recovery partition and install it there.
Now it works except that the hard drive's capacity which is 160 GB is not displaying correctly. When I go to disk management you can see that there is 130.17 GB recognized however it isn't a part of the main C: partition like it was before. I know there is a method in Windows 7 to extend a partition to include additional space however in Windows XP when I right clicked on the unallocated 130.17 GB I could use the windows new partition wizard and create a primary partition, extended partition, or logical drive. I chose extended partition thinking this would merge it with the C: drive but it did not. It only shows it as available highlighted in green but it is not merged with the 13.68 GB that only shows on drive C:
As you can see in the picture, when I right click the space I want to add to drive C: I can delete the partition or create a new logical drive. Any idea on how to remedy this issue?
