when I boot to the gparted live cd, it sees 2 partitions on my laptop's hard disk, a large one with the boot record and a relatively smaller one, I think, created for system snapshots for recovery purposes. When I click on the boot drive, it gives me some sort of error message saying that I need to run chkdsk /f on the windows and reboot TWICE, in caps. After I did this (by the way chkdsk /f does not find anything wrong with the drive) I get the same message from gparted. What is wrong with this. This is my first machine with vista home prem. came preloaded and so far I am not very happy about it. Also I do not have installation disk or anything like that whatsoever. If I get to be able to partition and see the dreaded corrupt windows partition message, I dunno what I can do.
All I want is to create 2 other partitions. One for me to run Linux and one for the wife to run her win XP so that she can install quickbooks and keep making money. Vista is pure crap in my opinion so far. Nothing more than eye-candy.
