Partioning hard drive, what to do

Sun Jun 26, 2011 7:35 pm

I have always made 1 partition in which my OS and everything is installed in. Should I make 2 partitions this time, I only have 1 hard drive so I thought that it would be better just to make 1 partition.

Make a primary partition as large as the drive will hold (Windows will default to this). Make that partition active. Format and enjoy.

If you boot from the Windows DVD, you'll find that Windows Setup will walk you through this without much hassle.
