✔ Best Answer
1- You can use Disk Manager in Windows 7 do format partitions and expand existing partitions.
2- If Windows is not installed yet, you can use Windows 7 install disk to delete current partitions and create what you need and format it.
3- Depending on your hard drive, most HD mfg's offer software utilities for their disks, both Windows versions and bootable versions you can burn to CD's that can do all you need.
4- You can go online to the system mfg's site and download your manual there, usually as a PDF that can be saved to any computer. Laptops and many netbooks have their hard drives under a removable cover that is held on by one or more screws. The drives themselves may not even need a screwdriver to remove it once you open up the access panel.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Many thanks for your reply, unfortunately the advent company only have the basic manual explaining how to get started, they want to charge for an engineers manual. I got Minitool Partition wizard and that allowed me to resize.
