    i finally got a hand on a new laptop! its pretty cool but i'm wanting to re-partition the harddrive!

    spec brief:

    HP DV6000 (http://www.dse.co.nz/cgi-bin/dse.sto...ct/View/XC3980)
    Windows Vista Home Premium
    120GB HD

    this laptop unfortunately doesn't come with the OS CD!

    the hard-disk has two partitions, 106GB for the OS and 7GB Recovery...

    i have no intention on touching the Recovery partition yet! I'm not too sure if deleting it would void my warranty...

    can anyone give me directions on how to do this?

    We cannot read your mind nor we know how much you know about the format / partitioning but if you provide what help you need in partitioning it will be of help to us.

    As a general instruction the bootable OS CD has the option of formating and partitioning the hard drives.

    If you Want to partation ur hard disk without losing or reinstalling>>>>

    use hard disk partitioning software

    you can find it on 9down.com

    Software name paragon hard diak manager

    but be careful with these type softwares because a wrong process can damage ur hard disk
    use them carefully
