The Ultimate Boot CD itself should load on a SATA CD/DVD drive, but most of the programs will still not recognize a SATA hard drive.

If you're just after resizing partitions, though, the GPartEd LiveCD is probably a better option. As its a rather poorly optimized Debian LiveCD, it will take a while to boot.

In general, if you want to use software that only supports IDE drives and you have SATA drives, you can usually switch the controller mode to emulate IDE in the BIOS.

I think if you resize C to 50GB it will cause you more head-aches than you can imagine. If it runs good, why change it?

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers

100 GB would be more realistic.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
