Pavillion dv6t-7000 can't create a VHD for a dual boot win 7
by flagrantV_birdie321 - 12/6/12 9:50 AM
I just purchased an Hp Pavillion dv6t-7000, CTO Enterntainment notebook PC. I want to take space from the C drive and create a virtual hard disk.
Disk 0 is sectioned as follows:
199 MB NTFS; System Active, Primary Partition
C: 678.60 GB NTFS; Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Primary Partition
Recovery D: 21.53 GB NTFS; Healthy Primary
I would like to take 50gb from C: and create a virtual hard drive to install windows 8 to have a dual-boot system. Can someone point me to a credible link that describes how to do this or share the solution? I have tried a process described at TechRepublic where you create a VHD, then boot to Windows 8, shft f10 into an admin window and try to use diskpart to select the vdisk file which does not exist, ie., i can't find it.
Is there something else I need to do? Can I do this through the disk manager?
Many thanks for any info
