You can use a product named Norton Partition Magic (or a similar product). Please note: Before attempting disk partitioning, you must:
1) Backup all your important files, and
2) Run a disk defragmentation program.
Norton Partition runs from Windows, and has an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI).

I have Gateway T-Series W350A Windows Vista Home Premium Japanese model. I would like to increase hard disk space for Windows 7. Can I uprade the hard disk?


Yes you can upgrade the hard drive.

You just need to pull it out and find if it is a SATA or an IDE

SATA has slots and IDE has pins.

Gateway Laptod Model No M360


First you will need to register at gateway, I took the serial number you provided and gateway has no record of it, once you register it, you should be able to purchase the recovery disks. I'm including the link:
https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=gateway&sn=0000000000 you need to register in order for this link to work, that serial number has to be in gateways system, once it is you can order recovery media. Hope this helps

No internal hard disk found


Hi there.
Use the Vista CD to create the new partition, but first you have to delete the old partition first, (the 220GB partition not the 10GB one because that will be the recovery partition).
Get a calculator and work out your new partition, for example 50GB is 50x1024MB so that will be 51200MB.
When you have deleted the 220GB partition select NEW and input your newly worked out partition and carry on from there, to activate the other partition just format it.

Please post back with the results and for anymore help if needed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Acer boots from xp


take it back to store. basically a hidden, but unremovable partition is causing the xp bootup. It happened to me aswell. They will probably give you a replacement as it is an unfixable problem. Even with new hard drive didnt fix it. Sorry about that.

Unable to install IOMEGA HDD on Vista Home Premium


Vista may require drivers that are not preinstalled. If the drive clearly works on one machine, but not another, its safe to pressume its not the drive. On the VISTA machine, go to the Iomega site and download the driver for vista or usb or whatnot.
