    Can anyone tell me how to merge a partition of your HD with your main partition?

    I've tried a copy of Acronis Disk Director Suite but when checking the partions it gives an error.

    Any help?

    What OS? Mucking about with partitions can be messy - make sure you back up whatever you've got and wouldn't want to lose.

    If you're in Linux then it can be a snap. gparted is a wonderful partitioning tool. Windows is a little trickier.

    I use GParted LiveCD for my partitioning needs. Very simple. Just burn an .iso to a CD and boot from CD. You can also use a USB drive.

    As superduck said - be sure you have your important bits backed up!!

    I forgot that you can boot gparted from the livecd. That might not be a bad route regardless of operating system.

    How exactly do you make that boot disk? I unzipped the download, burned them on a cd but nothing happens when I try booting it.

    You need to burn it as an iso image. I don't know what program you're using to burn your CDs but see if you can find some instructions specific to that program with a google search:

    how to burn an .iso image using ____________

    or something..it must be an .iso image though..won't work otherwise.
