    Partition Manager 9 Supports only Windows Vista / 2000 / XP.

    PM 10 supports Windows 7.

    Okay then, do you know if the Paragon PM 9.0 Bootable CD can even be used if I boot from it, when Windows 7 is installed on the active primary partition (C:\)? Thanks -

    Yes - works fine for me. PM10 is even better, of course.

    What are you wanting to do?

    If you post a screenshot of the Disk Management window - that would be helpful.

    SIW2, I rarely create any partitions or apply partition-changes with PM 9.0 from within the WindowsXP desktop, but from the PM 9.0 Recovery CD. I'm 'thinking' about upgrading to Windows 7 64-bit soon, and I want to make sure that Windows 7 will be a 'keeper' before I invest in Partition Manager 10, and not if I don't need to, at least not right away. To clearify, are you able to use Partition Manager 9.0 from the Recovery CD with Win7 active 'and' from the Windows 7 desktop, or were you saying just from the Recovery CD?

    To answer your question,"What are you wanting to do?"; I was wondering if any or all of the features of PM 9.0 were usable from the Recovery CD (and/or the desktop) with Windows 7/64-bit installed on the active partition/'C'....) Thanks!!

    The new NT6 partitioning rules are the same for Vista and 7.

    Paragon products are the best partitioners you can get.

    You will be fine to use 9 series to create a new partition to install 7 onto.

    The Paragon bcd corrector ( you will find it on under the boot correction options on the cd) on the 9 series doesn't support 7. The partitioning functions work fine from the windows XP /Vista/7 GUI and the boot disc.

    If you have PM9 installed on XP now - you can create a new partition from within XP, or with the Paragon boot disc - that should be very straightforward.

    It will be simpler to create a partition on the right of XP - that saves changing boot.ini.

    If you decide to keep 7 and remove XP - you may then want to shift the 7 partition to occupy the lower address spaces (where xp is now). PM10 will do that for you beautifully.

    I am sure 7 will be a keeper for you - and that you will upgrade to 10 series.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks for a very helpful answer. Just one more thing, when you wrote "The partitioning functions work fine from the windows XP /Vista/7 GUI and the boot disc", did you mean that 9.0 does install in Windows 7, referring to the PM 9.0 GUI in the Windows 7 desktop?
    Again, thanks....very helpful!

    Yes, it installs on 7 ( provided you have the same bit version - you can't install the 32 bit version of PM9 on 7 x64, obviously).
