how to create a new partation on existing dri

Specs: Windows XP
i thought I would be able to partition and label more than one drive section when I installed
a new 250 gb hardrive. When It prompted what I wanted to make the C;drive I indicated 150gb
which it made available 137gb for C;. That was it i also wanted to designate two other drives
as subdividing the remaining 100 gb. However I wasn't given any additional prompts for the remaining hard drive space which now isn't apparently accessible. Trying dos didn't help.

I'd like to do this with out having to format the whole drive as the windows xp took many hours
downloading all the xp interim updates.

I agree entirely about the email address but it is too late - google picks up several hits.

I guess waatemp already gets spammed to death (or soon will).

You use partition wizard software, using which you can easily partition without formatting

Go to Computer Admin Tools > Management > Disk Managemt from the Start Menu.

You should see the unallocated space there where you can create partitions and format the rest of the disk.

However, if you asked for 150 Gbs for drive C: and only got 137 Gbs it would indicate that your computer is not 48 bit compliment and will only use hard disk up to 137 GBs. To use larger disks you need a 48 bit compliment BIOS and Windows XP SP 1 at the very least.
