usb partition

2 posts in this topic

I am looking to partition my 8bg usb drive into 2 partitions 1 x 1gb for fat boot and the rest as secondary partition. XP cannot remove or manage the partitions very well and diskpart appears to be impossible to use. I came across a utility called windows enabler that breaks the greyed out on windows xp partition option under computer manager. This then allows me to delete the partition and create a 1bg but does not allow me to create a partition for the rest of the drive.

I am now back to square one and cannot beleive i am struggling to simply create a partition at the size I require.... Any help greatly appreciated .

It is with great reluctance that I must recommend Gparted for Linux.

It's available as either a standalone ISO:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/gparted/files/gparted-live-stable/

Or normally with any other distribution. On the Ubuntu CD it's in something like system / utilities / partition.
