creating disc partitions in a newly deployed windows image in k2000

02/29/2016 627 views

Hi people,

I have just deployed a new image of windows with

my k2000. To avoid problems It has only one partition...(C:) .

I would like to partition the drives after deployment.

I couldn't seen to be able to partition the drive as a

preinstall task. I think you cant partition an image

before deployment

Any ideas anyone? Any good batch script anyone

willing to share.......Or best practices.

Thanks gang.

How do you want to partition the disk?  Purpose of repartitioning?

  • Hey SMal.
    My Scenario............
    Image of 100gig Windows7 system partition.........
    To be deployed onto a 500gig hard drive..........

    So ..... I don't want to have a 500gig C: drive for my new pc.
    That's why I want to partition it into C: and D: after the image has been installed.
    Didn't partition the 500gig beforehand cos not sure about deploying an image of a single partition onto a muti partition disc.
    Any of this making sense?
    • as long as you set the 100 active and as your c: drive you can do that as a pretask. Or you can do that as a mid task if you are more comfortable with that. The advantage of a pretask is diskpart task is built in.

      select disk 0
      create partition primary size=100000
      assign letter="c"
      create partition primary
      assign letter="d"
      • Thanks for the tip SMal.
        Will try it.
        Cheers mate.
