Ok, so I've been trying to find some sort of software that will allow me to take away some space from my active partition (OS = XP Home), so I can use this extra space and make a separate partition ( for Vista). However, DD is being very.. frustrating, and I went through w/ "Creating a partition" using the extra space on my main C: partition. I dedicated 80GB to this new partition, labeled it as V: (VISTA), and set it as a primary partition (though I tried active as well, and am not quite sure which to really pick for what I want). It had shown the two separate partitions, and said to save changes I must Commit (reboot). I clicked commit, rebooted as asked, then it would come up w/ the blue screen showing a bunch of text about finalizing the Partition changes. Then it said successful, and rebooted, and came up with the same blue screen w/ text, though it was a bit different. If necessary, I can go back and jot down what it read,s but the second blue screen was different and showed good results as well. Thne it would boot up XP as it normally does. Though when I went to look back at my partitions it STILL only has my typical primary C: drive. I tried it about 5 times w/ NO success at all, and it's getting frustrating that after so many commits, it just doesn't save the changes! Am I doing something wrong? Or should I try a different software? Thanks everyone EDIT: Ok, I've tried a few more things, and tried to just sipmly take it one step at a time, yet no matter what I do, the problem is that I can't take space away from my main partition and add it ot my other partition. It always asks for a reboot to commit, but NO luck..
