    Basically up to now I manually delete the bigger partition on same disc when deleting the old one then extend the 100 meg one into the larger partition of same drive.

    I assume there is a simple tool to do this for me so I dont have to bother, second part of this question is that my laptop is really strange, it has 2 sata connections and I use the 1st one not the 2nd but when I delete the partition to install windows it creates a 100 meg one a 0.0meg one and the rest of the disc, seems strange so how do I stop this?

    Second my motherboard is faulty and has a advanced tokens backup of the activation however I worry if I replace it with same motherboard will it fail activation?

    So what you really want to do is replace your mobo and retain your activation?

    How is all the partition manipulations related to having a bad mobo? Is there something else you want to do such as reinstall the OS? Or are you just looking for a simple way to partition a hard drive?
