hey, that's what I was going to say about patition magically destroy your data.

Acronis' partition tool boots from CD and runs under some kind of linux. there is NO NEED to reboot multiple times to effect changes

I just use linux to partition my drives.
If i'm installing linux, I use the installation program.
If i'm installing windows, I use a bootable CD.
