Windows XP provides partitioning functions within the administrator tools, Disk Management. Windows 98 SE provides a program called FDISK. You boot your computer with the win98 cd in the cd-rom, and select start computer with cd support. At the prompt, type in FDISK.

Otherwise you need a disk paritioning software like partition magic

You can use a free partitioning tool like EASEUS Partition Manager Home Edition to resize the partition.

You select your hardrive and then choose Resize ,you then enter the size you want ,then on the smaller partition you will create a new partition and format it.
Very user friendly ,comes with help file and all.

Restore Hardrive to Factory Settings, Missing Hidden Partition

Yes Claudia you are right. When you wiped the hard drive you deleted the partition that contained the systen restore (factory restore). You will have to purchase a new copy of Vista. It will not contain all of the other programs that came with your computer originally.
Before you installed Windows 7 it clearly states that you have to back up your system before you install it on your hard drive.
Why didn,t you keeep windows 7, if I may ask? If you made a copy of it (which you had to do when you insatlled it) reinstall it and use it. Microsoft will let you purchase it for $50.00, which is a lot less that what it will cost you to purcase Vista Home Premium.

80gb harddrive that only says it has 34gb

Using a program like Parition Magic would allow you to adjust the partition size of your current partitions. It is possible that Compaq has used some ot the hard drive space for its recovery and restoration software. You could combine the current partitions into one larger partition. It is also possible that another partition exists using a Linux or other non windows operating system.
