Hi, it's very simple just launch windows 7 installation booting from your dvd or usb key then during the first steps of windows instalation it will propose you to choose you hard drive destination. At this moment check the option below and delete all partitions one by one. Then create 2 new partitions as you want them. And finally choose the first one to install windows. Good luck

Just a quick note; You use a XP CD to do the same. You don't need a Windows 7 DVD.

It's a good day when you learn something

If memory serves me correctly you may have a choice to select a percentage of the disk to partition. In that case you would choose 50%.

May I ask why you are dividing as you are? What do you intend to install on the C & D partitions?

When doing the job with Windows XP initially you will only get the opportunity to create one partition, the one you are going to install Windows on. Once Windows XP is up an running you can them go into Disk Management and create the second partition in the unallocated space.
