Iam getting a new 500GB HDD in which I plan to install Vista 64 to replace my aging 160GB with Vista32. Now I wish to partion this into 150 and 350 segments. How do I exactly do this? what software do I use? I googled but the instructions are effing dense. I suppose I have to partition Before I install Vista, right? BTW is there a performance benefit to Partitioning? thanks in advance scurv.
