I have a SINGLE partition with Windows XP professional. I want to keep it and install one of the Linux versions. How can I repartition my hard drive without losing data and then install Linux.
While Ranish Partition Manager can create partitions, noteTenaliRaman said:Partition Magic does one thing best, gives the best interface there is to create a partition. Ofcourse cheaper ways do exist, and one of them is
Ranish Partition Manager
Notice : Experienced user preferred.
So, the original poster will still need something like ntfsresize. Of course, the non-free Partition Magic can do both resize NTFS partitions and create partitions.[PLAIN said:http://www.ranish.com/part/faq.htm][/PLAIN] [Broken]
Can RPM work with NTFS?
RPM can only create/boot an NTFS partition. No formatting/resizing
can be done through RPM.
Well XP provides options for both NTFS as well as FAT during installation but yeah i guess if he is using NTFS then ranish wont help at all.robphy said:So, the original poster will still need something like ntfsresize.
