partition containing XP, HELPP!!!!
Hi, before i installed XP on my computer , i partitioned my C: into 2 partitioins, giving XP 2gb and the 2nd partition 8gb..
shortly after doing this, but not before i had re installed all of my programs, set up my drives and got the computer up and going... i realised that 2gb is far to small for XP to run on!!
i fort 2gb would be ok, so long as i set the virtual memory on another of me hard disks, turned off hibernate support and installed my programs and mydocuments on another drive, or in the 2nd partition.. But obv not!
i have installed Partition Magic 8 to make the 2nd partition smaller thus creating unpartitioned space, so as i can use this free space to increase my XP partition... but i cannot seem to re-size the XP part!?
i understand that there can be problems , where the file system has to be resized aswell otherwise XP ,even tho in a larger partition, will not read data outside its origional partition boundaries..
but surely there is a way? i dont want to have to re install XP again, as i would have to re-install everything and pritty much start from scratch!
can anyone help!?
