For example, if you have 5 GB and 12 GB unallocated areas, the wizard will offer to create a partition on the 12 GB area. If you want to create a partition on the 5 GB unallocated space, you will have to reject the wizard s suggestion and simply select this area and click Create a new partition.

More details about the properties of main file systems, the operating systems, and disks are provided in the A. On the next wizard page, you will be asked to select a partition letter.
Partition Logical Drive Letter selection window At startup, an operating system assigns letters C:, D:, to partitions. These letters are used by applications and the operating system to locate files on partitions. See also Appendix B «Glossary» «Letter of a drive, partition ». That means some operating system partitions are assigned letters and numbers, in others, only numbers. Therefore, when performing partition operations, you must be careful and remember that each operating system works differently with partition letters.
Each OS has its own partition letter assignment rules. The C: partition is considered system, i. File system type is determined not by partition type, but by its contents. Partitions of other types are passed no letters are assigned to them. The first primary active partition found on the first hard disk is assigned C:.
If there s no such partition, C: is assigned to the first suitable primary partition Similarly and consecutively, one of the primary partitions from other hard disks is considered. They are assigned D:, E:, etc. If there is no suitable partition found on the first disk, then C:, D:, etc.
Next, all suitable logical partitions are considered in the sequence order on the first, second, third, etc. They are assigned E:, F:, G:, for example Finally, in order, letters are assigned to all remaining suitable primary partitions of the first, second, third, etc. Partition operations in the mentioned operating systems may result in problems running applications, opening files and other problems if letter assignments change. Windows NT 4. Please note that letter order in these operating systems can differ depending on the number of hard disks and other disk drives recognized by the BIOS.
All these operating systems enable you to change initially assigned letters. Partition create, delete and move operations do not affect letters assigned to other partitions.
Other partitions will not be affected by these operations. SYS swap file. Hard disk partition letter assignment in various operating systems is further explained in all guide chapters where the partition operations might affect PC operation or booting.

A new partition can be created in this space. When creating a partition with the switch set to Free space of the existing partitions, you provide a small partition size.
If it is possible to create it using unallocated disk space, the partition will be created this way; the existing partitions will not be resized. If a partition cannot be created using unallocated space only, then the deficit will be taken from existing partitions. If you do not select a partition to take space from on the Select Partitions wizard page and there is no unallocated disk space, you will see an error message: Error message of deficient disk space for partition creation Copyright Acronis, Inc.

If there is not enough space, the partition will not be copied! On the next Partition Size wizard page, you can provide a desired size. The wizard will automatically determine the minimum and maximum copy size. The maximum size is determined by the available disk space. It includes the space taken from a partition and unallocated disk space. On the next Partition Type wizard page, you can select partition copy type: Active, Primary and Logical.
As a rule, Primary is selected if a partition contains an operating system. If a partition is intended for data storage, you should select Logical. Select Active if you want to boot the partition s operating system at startup. Further actions for copying a partition are the same as described in sections of 4.
As a result, some shortcuts might stop working. For a detailed discussion of partition letter assignment rules for various operating systems, see 4.

Are you a shareholder of Acronis? Posted 17 November – AM Hi guys. Thanks in advance Cheers Hi, welcome to the board. Posted 17 November – PM Hi, welcome to the board. I will take a look at those links and report here if I have any further questions. Eventually I got to the point where I have started my laptop, I press f12 and then a menu comes up.
I choose my floppy disk image and then it doesn’t boot up and it just restarts the laptop. Questions, if I may: – where do I get an img or ima of a good floppy disk with cdrom drivers?
I want to manage what I want to install and with an unattended method I can’t choose that. I’m sorry if I am not posting all the right info but I ran the tests last weekend and my memory is starting to fade away.
I will try it again this WE and I’ll try to post any error messages that popup or something similar. You are absolutely right.
Being a mod in a couple of forums should have taught me that if I want help I need to provide accurate facts. Yes I tried Bart’s network bootdisk. Then I thought it could be something in the process of building the bootdisk and so I went to try www. Well for starters I would be glad if I could boot to dos, partition the harddrive and copy win32 directory into the harddrive. But coming to think of that, how will dos recognize my SATA controller and harddrive?
XP itself needs some special drivers to recognize SATA controllers so I’m starting to wonder if dos doesn’t need some special drivers too. But now I’m only focused on getting dos to boot up properly.
Ultimately I’d love to have WinXP booting directly from tftpd That would be something! Then I can easily copy the ima or img file that it creates and use it in the tftpd32 server. I already have this one downloaded and I used it to get the pxelinux.
Roger that. As said before, I’ll try to run some tests today and I’ll try to post some error messages or anything that I might think as useful so that you can give me a hand. My laptop doesnt have a floppy drive on it Can you try either: a.
