There are two basic ways of creating a new partition. The first is through Disk Management from within the Vista operating system itself or, alternatively, there is a way of creating a new partition using the Vista DVD.

7/ Select your language from the list and press Next
8/ At the Installation screen press the Install Now button
9/ The product key window will now open
10/ Type your product key number into the available box and then press OK
11/ The End user Licence Agreement now appears. You 'must' accept this to continue
12/ The next screen to appear is 'Where do you want to install Windows'
13/ At the bottom of this window you will see an option marked Drive options (Advanced), click on this option
14/ In this Window select 'unallocated space' from the list of partitions and then click New
15/ A size box will now appear under the New option
