    Hi, I installed Windows Vista Home Premium on my Dell Inspiron successfully
    on a partition (C:, 50GB) and I still have another 50GB unallocated space. I
    am wondering how I can create a new partition in Vista to use the allocated
    space.

    When I tried to use the Installation DVD to create the new partition, I got
    the following message: "Windows Cannot be installed to this hard disk space.
    The selected disk has the maximum number of partitions of this type."

    If anyone can shed some light on this, I would appreciate it very much.

    Thanks a lot,

    Jake

  2. Open Computer Management from the Administrative Tools in Control Panel and
    use the Disk Management item under the Storage node.

    Thanks , Mike. When I tried with Disk Management, it complained for
    insufficient space. Can you advise..?

  4. Jake, did you click to select the unallocated space?
    It may be it was looking at the C: drive.

    Does your hard drive have four partitions already? If so, you cannot use Windows built-in disk management tool to create new partition with the unallocated space. The only solution is to use third party partition software like AOMEI Partition Assistant. http://www.disk-partition.com/
