Partitioning Tags: Hard Drives Computer Ubuntu Partition Windows XP Storage Last response: March 13, 2010 1:02 AM in Storage Share raybob95 March 12, 2010 11:36:23 PM Hey guys, So I have this old computer that I'd like to try out Ubuntu with. It's old, with an 80GB HDD. But it works fine for what I ask it to do as a secondary computer. Anyway, is there anyway that I can partition the Hard Drive while in XP and without having to reformat? I'd like to have a 50GB partition for XP and a 24GB Partition for Ubuntu.
