Just bought a new laptop with Vista already installed, and decided I'd partition the drive so that I could to run 4 operating systems (Vista, XP, osx86, Ubuntu). My harddrive is about 300 gigs (with a D:\ recovery drive of 10 gigs leaving me 290 to play with), so I figured I'd set the Vista partition to 75 gigs, XP to 50, osx86 to 25, and Ubuntu to 25. I started off by splitting my harddrive into a 240 gig partition and a 50 gig partition (for xp). When I tried to split the 240 gig partition again (which featured about 180 gigs of free space), DDS told me there was not enough freespace available to create another partition (I hadn't even been given the option of specifying a size yet). I wasn't sure where to go from here, so tried resizing my Vista drive to be 75 gigs, leaving me 165 or so of unallocated space to play with....but still when I try to turn this space into a partition, DDS tells me there's not enough free space. Now I don't have a clue what to do.... Apologies if this has been covered before, I tried searching and didn't find anything quite fitting my problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
