Question about MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR (MS-6570-030) Motherboard
I have a Gigabyte motherboard (G31M-S2L) with a primary hard disk containing Windows Vista(Build 6001) SP1. It has plenty of room - it is 680Gig - the processor is an E8500 and i have an Award Bios version 2.4.
One issue i am not sure of is how do I partition /format the secondary hard disk(500Gig Sata 2) given i am thinking of using my spare 2 Windows Xp Pro Setup disks on 2 spare partitions. Or would i use the Paragon Hard Disk Manager program?
What else do I need to have the computer boot to one of the partitions that would be available?
1. Open Computer Management by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Computer Management.

2. In the Navigation pane, under Storage, click Disk Management.
3. Right-click an unallocated region on your hard disk, and then click New Simple Volume.
4. In the New Simple Volume Wizard, click Next.
5. Type the size of the volume you want to create in megabytes (MB) or accept the maximum default size, and then click Next.
6. Accept the default drive letter or choose a different drive letter to identify the partition, and then click Next.
7. In the Format Partition dialog box, do one of the following:
• If you don't want to format the volume right now, click Do not format this volume, and then click Next.
