    List Disk Shows No Free Space Available.

    Dear Friends,

    I installed Windows 8 Pro on a GPT partition. I have 234GB of SSD with 87% free space according to Disk Management. I am trying to create a 4GB primary partition for Intel Rapid Start but the Disk Part shows i have no space available in that drive and would not let me create the partition. Why would that be?

    I had the same problem and this was the only place that provided me with a solution. I was able to follow the link and shrink the drive and then use diskpart withing CMD to format it for hibernation function, thank you
