Windows 7 installed wrong, please help!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello, i have a little problem , when i was installing windows7, i have 1tb HDD and in the instalation i presses new, and i went down from 1tb to 500gb, cuz i though that will make C and D disks in my computer. But no, when i came to the my computer there is just disk D and its 500Gb, i installed them incorrecttly, i just need to know how can i reinstall them? In youtube all videos show how to install windows from dvd, i dont have dvd room so i installed these windows from usb. But how can i reainstall them, so i can get 1t?

Short version - When i installed windows7 i didnt used the maximum - 1tb HDD memorie, i only used half of it - 500gb.
How can i reinstall and use full memorie, no dvd, only usb? I dont have DVD room.


PLease help, thank you.

You don't need to reinstall Windows to do this

Go to your Start Menu

Right click Computer

Choose Manage

Now click Disk Management in the left pane (it's under 'Storage')

In the bottom pane you should see your hard drive(s), something similar to this:

You should see a block which is labelled 'unallocated' you can right click it and create a new volume, assign it a letter (D:\).

Here's an article with more detailed steps:

Reinstall normally and use a single partition. Alternatively remember to format both partitins and create filesystem on both should you want 2 partitions.

But that is only if you feel the need to reinstall at all.
