Specs: Windows7 Home Premium, Core 2 duo T6600
I have dell studio 1555 with 320 GB SATA HD.I need to resize my partitions.In my 320 GB sata HD i have 146 GB in C:drive and 142 GB free unallocated space and others are in recovery and OEM.
I decided to allocate 50 Gb for C:/ but when i try to Shrink it shows that the Size of available Shrink space is only 203 mb out of 149934 mb .And the extend Volume Option is disabled.Is it possible for me to have 5-6 partitions each around 50 GB without reinstallation.If I can do through 3rd party software,Pls suggest me the best free partition softwares.
Is it possible to have XP on D:/ drive with win7 on C:/

Check Disk Management to see what you currently have. You can only have 4 Primary partitions or three Primary and one Extended with as many logical drives as available drive letters.

if your going to reinstall win 7, why not format the drive and start again with creating new partitions, thats the simplest way for you to go at this point...
