HP Compaq DC8100SFF - Recovery Plus! unable to partition drive

Hi,

 

I have tried recovery of HP DC8100SFF using the Recoery Plus! DVD, however when I try to choose the partition (of 2 drives) which was an option offered. It always install the system into a single drive (using up all disk space, I hv checked with computer management)

 

Any one could assist me so I could recover the WinXP Pro into 2 drives. C: and D: ?

 

Thanks

Provost

You can't as far as I know.Recovery makes one large partition and installs on it. You can use third party software to partition the hdd after the install is completed.

 

If you need free software, Partition Wizard is highly rated:
