    Thing is, I would have expected the Vista recovery disc to wipe the lot anyway to put it back to factory crappiness.
    here we go:

    linux:/home/linux # fdisk -l

    Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x00000080

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 1 6 48163+ de Dell Utility
    /dev/sda2 * 7 60802 488336921+ 7 HPFS/NTFS


    thanks

    OK. All you have is a Dell utility and Vista. Nothing else.

    Does Vista let you shrink what it likely refers to as C: ?
    It doesn't usually let you shrink it as much as say a utility disc like Parted Magic. But considering the size of C: you should be able to free up sufficient for your needs.

    You have likely just been missing something obvious. There should be no issue doing the partitioning.

    See how you get on shrinking from within Vista, and report back.

    I can't shrink my c drive more than 82mb. From within Vista, when it says ' Enter the amount of space to shrink in MB' i can go up to 82 mb, no more. that's the weird thing i was talking few post earlier.

    Try Parted magic: I'd give you the link, but it's down for me at the moment.

    All the utility restore disc's seem to do the same thing. Wipe the entire disc and put it back to factory
