Windows 8 Partition Merge now having issues

    Something that did not finish loading from CD might be looking for that. You could try doing this:
    Go to device manager, uninstall driver for CD/DVD and restart computer. It should reinstall driver than.

    The new C drive. You might try shrinking it by say 100mb with windows disk management. Then expand it back to fill the space.
    Hopefully windows will then fix your partition snafu. Windows seems to sometimes not like other software playing with their partitions.
