Laptop partitioning problem
I recently bought a HP laptop with Intel Core Duo 1.73 GHz processor, 1GB DDR2 RAM, 100GB HDD and nVidia GO 7400 video card. It came preinstalled with Windows XP Home. But there was a problem. After keeping 10GB for a partition called HP_RECOVERY and 1GB more in a unnamed and hidden partition, the rest is all dumped into a single NTFS partition C.
When I tried to re-size the C partition to a smaller size using PartitionMagic (only 13 GB were in use so there was plenty of free space) the computer rebooted, windows loaded, PM started partitioning and then midway through Checking user entries came up with an error message and aborted. This repeated several times. What can I do to split the drive space into smaller partitions? Thanks a lot.
