5. Disk Hacks > 46. Create or Delete NTFS Partitions from the Recovery Console

Create or Delete NTFS Partitions from the Recovery Console

Create and delete NTFS partitions using the DISKPART from the Recovery Console.

Windows versions from NT to Windows Server 2003 know nothing about FDISK but provide their own partitioning tool, DISKPART, which is run from the Windows Recovery Console. DISKPART is a command-line utility used to add/create or delete NTFS partitions with some very simple commands.

  1. Boot using your recovery diskettes or setup CD and select the Recovery Console option. Alternatively, you can boot with a DOS diskette that provides CD-ROM support and type:

                      \i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons
  2. At the command prompt, issue the DISKPART command followed by the appropriate command.
