My preferred solution is GParted. You can download this LiveCD and boot from it. The interface is fairly simple to understand. NOTE: It is important that after you resize a Windows partition you boot it up right away and allow it to scan the disk.

How to make new partition for fresh install


Hi,

You need to access the disk management console by right clicking the My Computer icon and go to manage. Then find Disk Management tab.

What you want to do is delete the drive completely make sure the drive letter is gone then right click on the empty space you want to partition and tell it to partition it, then format it. If you need to make it dynamic you can do that next too.

Thanks,
Armymason
