I haven't used that or heard of it but not knocking it either. Now I just found one called perted magic and another good tool is Hirens Boot Disk.

It will split the hdd however you tell it to and they will be completely seperate from one another. It is supposed to take a couple of hours to complete it but I was told that it works.
yes i mentioned this before drive magic maybe ?

The best arrangement for dual booting Win7 with Linux is to put the OS's on separate HD's booted via the BIOS. Set the preferred one to boot first, then boot the other one using the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key every computer brand or mobo has.

Try wiping your HD before reinstalling Win7: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

GRUB will corrupt Win7 when on the same HD or when linking the HD's using GRUB boot manager.

Yea that's what has been happening to mine. Ubuntu will allow you to do it on a single hdd though.

well what partition program could he use to split then besides the os he is trying to dual boot with linux and win7 personally im not that deep yet to dual boot my system

Im too lazy as it seems to switch back and fourth os's

and as the very link i posted they dont offer it anymore anyway so no matter what he would have to look for one under win7 requirments
