-Tommy boy - Ive tried partitioning during my reformat but was unsuccessful, i tried creating a new partition on the blue screen when you reformat by pressing the a key on the keyboard when it asks youto and nothing would happen, how do you do this?
-spanfusion - Im using an older 1.8 pent 4 with only 512 SD Ram on it, i would of assumed the newer seagate 160 GB would be better to run windows on as everything would run faster, as thats also where all my programs will be on, id rather leave it on teh 160?
-per- thnx for that info, will be reading very shortly....
-per- once again, i tried that upon my last reformat, but dont know exactly how to do it
-lurkwithin- The XP drive which i boot up from now is C: and i just changed the drive letter order so taht when i partition the C: it will be in this order: C: (half of the 160 GB)
D: other half of the 160
E:The 40 gig Western Digital
F: DVD burner
Regarding going into disc managment and creating a partition from there, well how do i do it? lol ive never done it from there? (and are you talking about doing all this like spanfusion suggested(partitioning the 40GB and using the 2 OS on it? caus id rather do it with the 160GB)
-per- Thnx for that info, reading up now
Thnx everyone, allready learned a lot of new ideas!!
PS Someone mentioned that PARTITION MAGIC will solve all of this automaticly, should i give this a crack too?
