how to add partition to T400 (Vista 64-bit)?

i just got my T400 yesterday and uninstalled all the crap, updated, and installed all my apps.  the process took several hours.  Then, I used Acronis Disk Director 10 (boot cd) to split the C: partition in two, so that I could move my documents onto a seperate partition.  The split went fine, but when I rebooted, some lenovo rescue and recovery thing came up and supposedly repaired my partition table (haha).  well, after that I wasn't able to login to windows, even when I deleted the new partition i had made.  I had to do a factory reinstall, and am now in the process of updating everything again Smiley Sad

 

does anyone know how I can make a partition without the lenovo rescue and recovery thing freaking out?  

 

thanks!

Start > Run > Type "diskmgmt.msc" without the quotes and click OK.

 

You will have to shrink drive "C", then create a new partition.

Glad to hear that it worked.

 

By the way, did you post this exact question on the NotebookReview forums?

 

Also, can you mark this thread as solved.
