Resize & Partition Vista HD
I've just bought a new PC and want to partition the 500gb hard drive. However the built in Vista tool will only let me create a new drive of 11gb. With Win XP I would use Partition Magic, but it's not compatible with Vista.
What has everyone else used?

I had no issues using the built in vista partitioner. I repartitioned my 100gb drive to 1x70 and 1x30

Have you tried SystemRescueCD? Which comes with both gparted and ntfsresize.

Likewise I have had no issues with the Vista tool. I prefer it to XP as you can resize live partitions right in the drive managment snapin without even a reboot which is really handy.
