    Before you ask, yes i have searched.

    I want to partition about 50/70GB for Windows 7, but i've had no luck. I found something called GParted which you can use without having Linux, you can just boot from start up, but imgburn doesn't want to burn to my CD's (i don't have any DVD's at the moment)

    So i searched how to boot from USB, and i formatted my USB to NTFS and told me to go onto the cmd and set it as active, but it didn't want to do that for me.
    Tired Virtual Drive, but didn't work.
    Could anyone help?

    Yes it is the best (possible the only properly working) solution to partition while running windows.

    Sorry in advance for the repeated posts.

    I installed Windows 7 over Windows XP, because i knew it worked.
    Now all my folders from Windows XP are still on my hard drive and i have no way of deleteing them because it wont let me
    T_T could anyone suggest something?
