It would be very wise to use the boot disk, it's a lot more reliable than the installed version.


Here you go, thanks for the heads-up about the link, I have fixed that.

First download the Partition Wizard Bootable Disk (PWBD) ISO file to the desktop, be sure to get the PWBD and not the installed version; scroll down to see the download link for the bootable CD ISO file at this link below.
Partition Wizard Free Bootable CD
Then use ImgBurn to burn the ISO to a CD, at no greater than 4x speed with a verify; it was designed for use and works best from a CD rather that a then boot the created CD to make the changes.

It's very easy, just follow the tutorial to do the shrink/resize, then after the resize completes reboot and use Windows disk management to do the create, not PW.
