    Chapters 7 and 8 of the TrueImage 8.0 User's Guide (Transferring the System to a New Disk, and Adding a New Hard Disk) describe the partitioning process in detail.

    But in Appendix A (Partitions and file systems), it says "Partitioning is performed by special applications--in MS-DOS and Windows, these are FDISK and Disk Administrator).

    Can I partition my present unpartitioned disk and the new disk that I will be having installed tomorrow JUST by using TrueImage 8.0? Or is separate software needed for creating partitions?

    If you want to retain the data on your existing disk (which I assume you do) then you'll have to use a non-destructive partitioning application such as Acronis Disk Director Suite (the one I use) or Partion Magic (the one I used to use!). However, you can use TI 8.0 to partition and format your new, out-of-the-box, hard drive as there is no existing partition/data to retain.
