    partition master home edition download
    thanks to Satangel: Do NOT try this on an 64 bit system


    steps
    1. plug in hdd and start easus partition master home edition.
    2 you'll see at "disk 2" your hdd if you have more usb sticks or hdd plugged in you'll may have more disks make sure you make a partition on the right one.
    3. right click (how do you say that in english) on the hdd and choose for resize/move, choose the size and hit ok
    4. now you'll have an "unallocated" space, right click on that and click create
    5. now choose "FAT32" and create it as "primary"
    5. close the programm. it will say "currently 2 operations pending(or something)" push ok
    5 when it's done you'll have 2 partitions!

    And you should definately mention that you shouldn't try this on a 64bit system, because that method you posted almost made me format my PC.

    Worked for me on windows 7 x86, using CIOS rev 10 and usb loader 1.5. Had to format the partition to a little over 7gb only (had tested on a sd card of that size) to make WBFS manager be able to format it after though.. having it at 200gb~something gave me an error on WBFS manager.

    EDIT: Thanks!

    This is really a no brainer, just create two partitions, and have one formatted in Wii's format. Not very hard, but helpful to the people who don't know.


    You can use any partition manager, even use Windows' to create two partitions.

    In the parallel dimension
    2 questions
    1. Does this program partition without formating?
    2. I already have Norton's Partition Magic. Is there anyway for it to identify my jumpdrive while it's fully wbfs so I can partition it? Also question 1.
