Create New Partition Using The Vista DVD 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.

By default Windows Vista can create 3 Primary partitions on a drive. If you create a fourth partition this will be created as a Logical or Extended partition.

To create a new partition using the Vista CD proceed as follows:

1/ Switch on your PC
2/ Quickly insert the Vista DVD into your CD/DVD-ROM drive
3/ A message will appear asking you to 'Press any key to boot from CD/DVD
4/ Press any key
5/ A black screen will now appear with a progress bar along the bottom. The legend say's 'Windows is loading files'
6/ After the files have been loaded the Language screen will appear.
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
16/ Type the size of the new partition into this box (or simply accept the default), then click the Apply button
17/ The new partition will now be created.

Hi got a acer 5220 notebook it had vista installed i formatted it 2 xp but some drives dont work i have not got a cd for vista what can i do?


What drives don't work? It is probably just some drivers. I would recommend finding the drivers and using XP, but if you want to put Vista back on... You can borrow a Vista DVD (Vista won't fit on a CD) from someone you know that has one. You should have a Vista COA (Certificate of Authenticity) on the bottom of your laptop with your 25 Digit Product Key. All versions of Vista are on every Vista disk, so when you put your product key in, it will install the correct version.
