    just curious, Bonnerik, is your system still booting ok, or did you have to run a boot repair cd?

    May be I can explain to you. This should not effect anything since these unallocated partitions are not seen by Windows (No volume assigned, just unallocated) and he should not have to do any boot repair.

    Here's an example:

    As long as you move the unallocated partition around, the rest of the partitions will be unchanged. If you create a partition from the unallocated partition then all partitions # to the right will be shifted by one ie. 2 becomes 3, 3 becomes 4 then you'll have the problem.
