Resizing boot disk drive to make space for Windows 7 partition

Resizing boot disk drive to make space for Windows 7 partition

The new 1.5 Tbyte Seagate disk drive has now been installed and has booted into Windows Vista. The c: drive is 253 Mbyes, which is more than I need. I'd like to reduce the size of c: to make space for a Windows 7 partition at a future date. Here, I am using a program called Easeus Partition Manager to do this.

 

In this article I explain how to upgarde a 160 GByte Hitachi hard disk drive to a 1.5 Tbyte Seagate disk drive, without having to reinstall my operating system, software, or having to back-up any data. The new disk has been organised so that I can install Windows 7 on a second disk partition at a later date.
