transfer the OS partition to another one

By cabeza77 ·
is there any way that i can do this?
i just want to skip having to reinstall everything on a new partition(although since it IS XP it is about time to do a fresh install, its been about a year since last time) i want to change the partitions on the disc and maybe have a bigger OS partition to be able to handle My Docs, it is growing short of space, and maybe just leave this whole disc for the OS and related stuff, the other for whatever

I have used Ghost 7.5 boot disk to transfer images from one hard drive to another. I think you can pick which partition to transfer it to also.

You actually have other options as well. It sounds like you have a second partition. You could backup everything on that second partition to a cd or dvd and resize the primary partition with a program called Partition Magic.

You could burn your My Documents to a cd or dvd, delete them from the primary drive and run them from the cd or dvd.

There are other options as well as other programs also. To me, using the ghost boot disk is the easiest.
