Windows 8 built-in Disk Management has many limitations. It can't delete system partition, it can only extend volume when there is some unallocated space behind it, otherwise, the "Extend Volume" option is not available. Because Windows 8 built-in Disk Management doesn't provide "Move partiton" feature, so you have to seek Windows 8 partition magic alternative.
