creating partitions

Posted: 03-23-2005, 02:20 PM
I recently joined a firm and decided to do a complete system restore on the
computer I will be using.

It is an HP Pavilion with XP.

What I want to do is create some partitions, but the HP System recovery cd
set does not give me the option during recovery to create the partitions.

Is there a way I can create the partitions?

(I also posted this in the Compaq newsgroup)

The Recovery disk cannot do any partition setting. Win xp Pro will allow you
to create a partition when first installed. If you want to resize, delete,
copy.. the parrtition later, you need a utility software such as Norton
Partition Magic 8.0.

If you have the bandwidth to download Knoppix
(http://www.knoppix.org/), which is a bootable Linux CD, this will also
give you the ability to resize Partitions using its QTPartEd program.

But no NTFS support.

That is so not true.

As a matter of fact, I have just used Knoppix (version 3.7, even using
the 2.4 kernel) and QTParted to resize a 30GB NTFS partition to a 15GB
NTFS partition, no issues there... the system (WinXP SP2) boots fine.

Can I use it to create partitions after I have completed the Reinstall from
the HP recovery cd's?

I would get some advice from HP about whether partitioning will prevent the
recovery software from functioning correctly in the future. If there is
some risk of that I would not partition. You can always add another hard
drive to gain partitions.
