How to Format My New Laptop N5010 (Inspiron)

This question is not answered

Hello,

I have just received my New Dell INSPIRON N5010, and I want to make several partitions on my Hard Disk.

 

Detail of my Laptop

  1. OS : Windows 7 (Basic) Home Edition 
  2. Hard Drive: 500GB (They created a single Drive: C) 

Now I want to Format my hard disk & Make 5 Equal partition of 100GB each. Moreover, I want dual booting process also. (Windows XP & Windows 7) Due to few reasons i want to install both the OS. 

I tried to install windows XP but after reading few files "Blue Screen Error Occurred"

Please Help.. :(((((

  • Note:  There WILL NOT be a complete set of drivers available for XP - you will have to settle for partial functionality at best.  If you must run XP, upgrade to 7 Pro or Ultimate and use XP Mode under Windows 7.
