    Thanks for stepping in TopGun ...

    Yes, a CD is fine

    You can burn the ISO to it using the native Windows Burn-to-disc. Select the ISO when the download is done and the tab should be up top.

    Here is the Minitool How-to resize. Pretty much what TopGun already posted. There is a vido at the top of the How-to page if you prefer.

    You're welcome Len - good choice on waiting until you get the disk schema settled.
    Your drive is GPT, so you can slice and dice it anyway you choose.

    I usually leave the largest chunk of space at the end of the drive. Seldom used files go out there (install files, backups, system images, ....). I have used different labels over time (The attic, the Basement, Cold Storage )

    You know your needs better than I do, but it's easier to plan than to change.

    Just type the number into the "Partition Size" text box. 200GB: 1024 * 200 = 204800 , 150GB: 1024 * 150 = 153600 etc...

    If you are making a habit of saving your personal data to another partition which you should then I think 150GB is plenty. Keeping Windows OS partition small, easy to backup/restore
    Type: 153600

    I'll bet you are just copying the iso file itself to the DVD. The ISO file is like a compressed Zip file. You have to burn the image that is inside the ISO file. I use imgburn for that.

    or, if you just install the Minitool Partition Wizard program you don't even have to mess with booting from a CD/DVD. You make your changes and the program will tell you that you have to reboot to finish them and it will boot back into the Minitool program and make the changes for you.
