Default Partitioning in Win XP 64-bit

What kind of partitioning tools are available and supported on 64-bit XP?

Partition Magic 8.0 didn't work for me...

I heard there is a way to make it work on x64, but I don't know what that is. If you guys know, please let me know.

Thanks a lot.

How do you use that? Isn't that for Linux?

It is a LiveCD. you can boot from it and use it on its own. You dont need a OS installed to operate teh LiveCD version. It is based off of linux. But it can work to format and repartition any hard drive. Be it Linux, OS X or Windows.

Hey guys.

Well, the problem with 8.0 is that when I made a new partition and rebooted, it said "can't start xmnt2002" blah blah, and i had to edit the registry to remove that.

Is this problem fixed in 8.05?

Thanks!
