Looks like you did it propperly.
I'm Jared from jaredheinrichs.com
Because of the way hard drive are made you always get let then what it is advertised.
I have a 1TB drive. In My computer it says: 931MB. This is the equivilant of saying I have:
1,000,202,039,296 "bytes". When Drive manufactures claim it is 1GB this what they are talking about.
When you removed the OEM partition that was originally on the drive you freed up that space so that you could have one continuous partition. If you hadn't removed the OEM drive you'd have lost 2 or 3 GBs for the recovery partition.
Message me if you need any help.
