For some disk operations, such as formatting or deleting the system volume, the best way to do this is oustide the installed copy of Windows so Windows is not running from the media you wish to change.

Option 1:

Boot from the Windows installation CD/DVD. When prompted, do not proceed with the install, but go to the recovery console and then the command prompt. Here you can use the dated, but functional FDISK utility to perform partitioning operations on any partition including the system partition.

Option 2:

If you have a partitioning utility, such as Avanquest's Partition Commander, you can boot from it's CD much faster and perform the needed operations from a graphical/mouse driven interface.
