How to partition HD

  chrisbenwalker 22:12 10 Nov 2006

I have just discovered my new second hand pc is running pirated XP. I want to install a legit version, but want to run my windows & programs on one partition eg C: and my documents on another eg D:

Does anyone know how best to do this or know of any links that show how it can be done.

See click here, & under "How to partition and format your hard disk by using the Windows XP Setup program". G

Once in Windows, you can create more partitions if required at any point click here. G

You can do this I think when you setup with a XP disc. I know it can be done once XP is on and running. But think it allows you to do it with a blank drive at setup

Thanks for the replies. Looks a bit clearer to me so will give it a go. Regards chris
