Well, I bought my Lenovo X220t with preinstalled windows 7HP and worked with it for 2 years. After release of windows 8.1 I gave it a try by creating new partition and enabled my PC to dual boot with either Windows 7 or 8.1. Still I need one extra partition to archive my data but actually now I have data on both OSs and I have no plan to erase either one at least in near future.
Now I have 4 primary partitions:
- SYSTEM_DRV (system, active, primary partition)
- D: Windows 7_OS (Primary Partition)
- C: Windows 8 (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)
- Lenovo Recovery (Primary Partition)
I want to use empty space in drive D to be my new partition and I know that I can't create another primary partition (I shrank Drive D and created unallocated space which I couldn't set it as true partition as it needs to be only on dynamic disk) . I think that I should change Drive D to Extended so that I can create more logical drives out of it.
Please tell me how to do so WITHOUT any data loss. (I found some methods which said data loss is possible)
