    My laptop has 2 partitions, one is unlabeled

    My IBM notebook has 2 partitions, one is the main C: drive and the other partition is about 1Gig but it has no drive letter attached to it.

    This unlabeled partition has all of the IBM recovery programs on it that run before windows starts up, but it also contains the files necessary to restore WinME which it came with, and there is no chance I will ever REVERT back. So now I have 1Gig of used space on my HD.

    I do think it is neat to have that unlabeled partition b/c it seems like it is uncorruptable but how do I delete that partition, give it a name, or just rearange it so I don't have 1Gig of useless files sitting on my Notebook?

    Also, I'd like to know if it is possible for me to create an unlabeled partition on my own for any of my other comps.

    Have you tried Partition Magic? Seems like that could take care of it pretty easily...

    Boot with a WIndows boot disk and use fdisk to remove the partition and recreate it.

    >>> and it was not warez..not even close actually..

    Why do you think the site owner added this little rider to his pages...

    >>>
    The software and links provided here are for general awareness, not for usage. If anybody uses them and violates the law in any way then he/she himself/herself is responsible for his/her act, neither this site nor its owner can be blamed for it.
    <<<

    ... perhaps there is some ambiguity about items like...

    >>> Accurate and fast crack engine.

    >>> Hacking, cracking and security exploits.

    >>> CD-Copy/Backup Instructions for PC & Playstation Games.

    ... and many others that I was unaware of?

    >>> Yeah, the mods are on a roll today

    The board has rules. If they are broken, someone will act on it.
