Tried to make another partition on my HD for loading Win XP. Partitioned now at 30-10GB for drives c+d. Trying to set up at 24-10-6. Using Partition Magic 7.0, I keep getting an error message. Says "Could not create another partition on disk 1" Tried using space from c and d drives, but same error. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? As always, your help is much appreciate!!

Tried to shrink down C drive and use unallocated space. Also tried taking straight from C and from D drives. Everything work up till when I choose what drive to take space from. Then pops up error box. Error is "A new partition could not be created on disk 1"
A question. When I installed and set up new 40 GB HD, had some problems. Had to download this upgrade to make things work.

Could this be causing my problem? Also, using D drive for system save data. If nothing else works, could I merge C and D drives so I only have one. Then try creating a new partition for Win XP?

Again, thanks for your assist!!
