The GParted application is the GNOME partition editor for creating, reorganizing, and deleting disk partitions.

A disk device can be subdivided into one or more partitions. The GParted application enables you to change the partition organization on a disk device while preserving the contents of the partitions.

With GParted you can accomplish the following tasks:
  • Create a partition table on a disk device.
  • Enable and disable partition flags such as boot and hidden.
  • Perform actions with partitions such as:
    • create or delete
    • resize or move
    • check
    • label
    • copy and paste
GParted uses GNU libparted to detect and manipulate devices and partition tables. Several optional file system tools provide support for file systems not included in libparted.

GParted is developed on GNU/Linux. It can be used on other operating systems, such as Windows, by booting from media containing GParted Live.

GParted is free and open source software available under the terms of the GNU General Public License

Using Gpart worked.

I managed to install windows - but for some strange reason, while using the 64bit disc, when i rebooted and logged in, My Computer says its installed the 32 bit operating system.
