    How to give unpartioned space to windows.

    I am in a bit of a dilemma.

    I installed xp, installed ubutu (dual boot) but then I decided to install ubuntu inside xp and used an xp cd to delete the previous former ubuntu installation.

    Now there is unpartioned space on my harddrive that I want to give to xp.

    How do I do that?

    I also want to give 5 gigs to the new install of ubuntu but I dont know how.

    Use Gparted Live CD:
    http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...kage_id=271779
    Burn the iso to disk and boot from it.
    Here are the instructions:

    I burned the image on a cd but for some reason when I pop it into xp it doesn't do anything. How do I get it to run? Do I need to make it run on boot up?

    Have to go into BIOS and mahe CD 1st in the boot order. Provided you did everything else well.
