Hi
I want to expand the OS partition on my Win 7 x64 Pro.
It seems that only the other partition is allowed to be expanded to the unallocated space.
See attached screen shot.

Thanks

when you right click the C (OS), do you see the EXTEND or it's shaded?

you will need to use a third party program to move it up to the proper position immediately after the C: partition.  A program I've used for this purpose is Boot-It NG:

You can download and try the program free for 30 days.  It has a built-in program to burn a CD with the program on it.  After you do that, you don't need to install it on your hard drive, but can boot from it and run it from the CD.  It's a rather "geeky" tool, with an old DOS style format, but it's fairly easy to use.

C  volume can not be extend, as unallocated free space is showing for the d volume

to extend C volume you need to first copy all data from d volume to some other location
delete D volume..  

after deleting D volume this will allow you to extend C volume option

once that is done you can recreate D volume and restore data back
