Windows 7: Partitions - Basic help needed

Partitions - Basic help needed


I didn't place any partitions on my PC when I brought it (and now regret it).

If I want Windows 7 in it's own partition leaving the other data separate, do I have to start from scratch?

Or, to put it another way, can I put a partition on my PC now, or has "the horse bolted"? Do partitions have to be done on completely clear HDDs?

Best regards
