Is there one, where can I get it?
Just partition with a floppy and partition magic same as before it is the same file system as xp so nothing has changed there
Im confused, what?
partitioning is independent of the OS, get http://gparted.sourceforge.net/
Yes boot from a floppy and use some free tool for partitions there are plenty and they do not need to be for Vista , it is the same file system as XP , so you can use the same tools you used in XP
I can't find any, none that look promising. Why else would I post here.
use the second link to download...for some reason there is no place to download I can find on the hiren website.
Are you looking for a tool to create new partitions or do you want to be able to modify existingones without data loss. Two different products.
If you just want to partition use Seatools, WD Utilities or whatever came with your HD. I assume Vista still has Disk Manager built in too.
If you want a free partition re-arranger, good luck. I haven't seen one I like (free or paid) since PM got butchered in the Norton buy out. I just keep a big old HD and write images to there then repartition as desired and write the image back.
Yea I think I need to re-arrange and stuff, not just partition.
You can also shrink volumes in Vista disk management then partition the unallocated space. If you boot from the Vista DVD you can create partitions on the disk screen.
that boot cd contains plenty of pirated software btw, which i dont think is allowed on these forums
see post number 4 in this thread
I already have the hiren cd so I will use that, i forgot that it had Partition Magic on it already.
Let me know if that fries your HD. If not I'll try it.
i agree, isn't it more convenient? Do you think that it(vista partitioning tool) isn't so good.
