    Does XP home edition have the software to partition the hard drive?
    Thanks.

    If it's from a clean install it does for sure. Follow this guide:

    If you aren't doing a clean install, or it's a secondary drive, try here:

    Only for use during initial installation, not for re-sizing after
    installation. However, if you have "empty space" after installation, the
    disk management tool will allow you to create & delete, and of course
    format, partitions in the empty space.
