I installed another hard drive in my computer. I would like to partition it. OS Windows7 RC

This is as far as I have gotten.


Control Panel>AdminTools>Create & format hard disk partitions>Local disk E> right click > What next?

Thanks for any help

The RC1 for Win 7...must be burned to CD. AFAIK, there's no other way to install it.

Then just use the CD to create/format/install on the appropriate drive.

Louis,

I have Windows7RC already installed on the diskC . I just need to know how to partition my new hard drive diskE.

What I want to do is install Ubuntu 9.04 in a partition on disk E. I don't need all of the drive space for Ubuntu.

Thanks

Jim

My error :thumbsup:...then just use the Disk Management function to partition for additional storage for your Win 7 install.

As for installing Ubuntu...I have no experience with linux distros but I should imagine it has it's own bootloader and partition/creating process.
