Can't partition Win7 Netbook for Linux instal

Asus Eee pc 1001p-mu17-pi netbook
April 18, 2010 at 14:33:38
Specs: Windows 7
Hi all

I need help: my new netbook's 160Gb HD
running under W7 Starter Edition cannot be
partitioned : the HD was already divided into 4
partitions at the origin and Paragon Partition
Manager refuses to proceed to further partition.

The HD appears as "Local Drive (C:)" and
"Local Drive (D:)" in Windows. Files and
programs are all on Drive (C:).

Drive (D:) hosts a unique file named
"VC_RED" , containing about 50 documents
with the extensions .RTM or .dll.

The point is I want to install Linux on the
second Drive (D:).

Can these VC_RED files be transfered on drive
(C:) without altering Windows, so I can use
drive (D:) to install Linux ?

Thank you for help !

Might look at registry for any entry that says vc_red. If any then you would have to edit to the new location.

Some files can never be moved. They are set by some odd programs to thwart copying.

Could head over to for some tips to make flash drive installs. They would work almost as well as your hard drive installs. And you can carry them to other systems.
