Hi all. Here's the situation. Disk has 2 partitions. 1st partition is XP, 2nd is Win7. When Win7 was installed, Windows boot started offering a choice between the two at each boot time. My ultimate goal is to reduce the space on the XP partition and increase the space (must increase downward into the current XP partition, since there is no space to expand to upward for the Win7 partition). Obviously, a risk here is screwing up the Win7 boot when the Win7 partition beginning is expanded downward. My hope was that Paragone PM could help with this. As an initial test, I installed the boot manager. Result is that when the system boots, it offers one choice -- which it calls the XP system (well, other choice is remove boot manager). If I take the XP choice from PBM, I then enter the usual Windows dual boot menu and can choose either XP or Win7 from there. That's where it stands. The question is, what would be a recommended procedure to move forward without risking losing the ability to boot into either system, keeping in mind that the ultimate goal is to reduce the size of the XP partition (and remove it in the end) and increase the size of the Win7 partition downward into the space not consumed by the XP partition. Thanks for any ideas!
