    Default Dual Boot

    Hey everyone, I am currently trying to install Back Track 4 Final alongside by current Windows 7 installation. When I get to step 4 of the installer for BT4, I am trying to partition my second hard drive to create a space for BT4. However, there is nothing to drag across or use to change the amount of space I want the partition to become.

    Would it be a better idea to create an unallocated partition in Windows 7, reboot and then install BT4 into that partition I just created? I really don't want BT4 to take up all 833GB of space left on my hard drive.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sincerely,

    Unforgiven Hero

    Use the disk partitioning tool included within windows 7 to shrink the windows 7 partition. You can make the parititon any size your would like, though I would encourage you to allow at least 100 GB of space, in case you decided you want to keep 33gbs and some change or rainbow\word lists available to you
