    I am going to format and reinstall XP on my Toshiba satellite M70 via recovery CD.
    It has 40 GB hard disk. I want to ask is there an option in the recovery CD to partition my HD before installing OS, just as we can do via XP CD?

    Thanks foe any help.

    Of course it’s possible to create a partition with the delivered Toshiba recovery CD!
    You have to use the recovery expert mode.
    Then you have to change the partition size in the ghost window. For example from 40GB to 30GB. In this case 10 GB stays free.

    After OS installation you have to enter the “Disk management” in the Computer management. (right click on the icon “My computer” – Manage)
    There you have only to make the 10GB partition visible.

    Other possibility is to use a Partitions Magic 8. This tool allows you to create and to manage the partitions after Windows installation

    Hi,

    After the Installation used the Management console/ Go to File/ Snap in add/ Add make a click of Volume Administration and saved this.
    In this window see you the Volumes of the Machine.
