How to split in two 320GB hdd

Hello Everyone

I have a replacement drive from WD. Its a WD3200AAJB and I need to how to create two 160 GB partition with windows 7 DVD. I do remember a equation of hdd capacity (cylinder x heads x sector = X). Yet I don't know if its workable. Worst yet is how many cylinder does a 320 GB drive has? I guessing that heads=16 and sectors=63. Any help would be grateful. This type of OS is Dr. Demento style. Stay demented

Is the drive meant to meant to replace your OS drive?

If so, at the time of installation you can create a partition when installing Windows using the format/partiton tool. (Basically select create a partition, select size and then point the installer to the created partition).

if it's just a storage drive you can Disk management to create the partitions. (R-Click computer>disk management)
