hey zat did u try that tweak urself before ?? coz I think that procedure would completely ruin down ur drivers & all ur data might be lost !! as Dagon mentioned,that act should be on safe mode using any partition manager application :top:

yep, tried it and works just find..if you are unsure, you can experiment with VMWARE.that's the safest way to test your system out with a program that you are trying out..

well,then I would like to test it myself coz u know the best way to change ur file system is on safe mode since it is the safest way to set system configurations while in Bios setup

i have converted my sys partition with no probs :smile: plus i don't think the mode windows has been booted on matters, the convertion program is run next reboot just before windows starts (at least when converting drive C:)

but of course you're right about the data loss should you for example have a power blackout as the drive's converted :top: (those are the kinds of things why i don't flash my bios... :eek3:)
