  1. Use DiskPart to Create the OS Partition on Clean Install.


    I have a Laptop HDD [ my preferred option as opposed to an SSD on this Laptop ] arriving on Friday and I want to use DiskPart to Setup the size of the OS Partition. The main reason I want to do it this way is because DiskPart can create an exact 30 GB Partition [ my OCD ] for example. Here are the steps that I tried the other day which did NOT work . . . Boot from the install USB. On the Windows Installation Screen press Shift + F10. diskpart list disk select disk 0 clean create partition primary size=30000 exit exit I intend to leave assign AND format fs=ntfs for Windows to perform as normal during the installation. Thanks.

    :)

The main reason I want to do it this way is because DiskPart can create an exact 30 GB Partition [ my OCD ] for example. Here are the steps that I tried the other day which did NOT work . . .

    • Boot from the install USB.
    • On the Windows Installation Screen press Shift + F10.
    • diskpart
    • list disk
    • select disk 0
    • clean
    • create partition primary size=30000
    • exit
    • exit
    I intend to leave assign AND format fs=ntfs for Windows to perform as normal during the installation.

    Thanks.

    Use DiskPart to Create the OS Partition on Clean Install.

    Those were the steps I did.

    Because I figured that Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom, would have required Windows setup to create a separate system and/or recovery partition.
