    Soon going to be installing windows 7 on my system, currently got XP & have a number of programs that might not work correctly on w7 so I'm going to have a duel boot system on the same hard drive.
    Q1. Can I create a partition at a later date or do I have to do it at the time of reformatting ( I want to install only windows 7 at present then put XP later )

    Thanks for your help on this delicate matter

    You can resize the disc in W7 and create a new partition at a later date, you can also use GParted to do the same... :)
