Partitioning a SSD

I am trying to partition my 128G  SSD adding a logical D:/ drive.
XP does not allow me to do it. There is a way around it?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

XP won't allow you to alter its OS drive, but if you use something like partition magic you will be able to reduce the C partition and create another. You will find the utility on Ultimate Boot CD.

Use whatever, but you must boot to something other than the disk you wish to partition unless you buy an Apple which will do it for you while the OS is running.
