I have never heard that you can create/split a partition using the cmd command. Your best bet, use a program like Powerquest's Partition magic. Does all the work for you, just sit back and watch.

Dude, get the partition magic trial, and get a serial for it.

LOL download the full version with the cd-key go to http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/p...9.exe?download
download that for the bit torrent then once done that go to www.suprnova.org
then search for magic then download it then open ABC on your desktop then it will be downloding there, www.yahoo.com search for cd cracks/keys for your partition magic.

I dont know what that error means. The only errors i have had with partition magic i have been able to fix with a chkdsk (from cmd or through partition magic itself). Otherwise i have created partitions, split, merged, moved, resized...you name it with that program and everything worked great. Then there is also drive magic which i use first to back everything up, just in case anything does go wrong...

Sorry i cant help more without actually knowing what that error means.

No b/c most of my partitions are primary (i believe you are allowed 4, but dont quote me on that). Your OS has to be on a primary partiton b/c a logical partition is not bootable.
