This is a similar question to my previous one.

I now am trying to get Backtrack5 onto a separate partition of my main hard drive with windows but the site says that I need a clean hard drive. Is there anyway around this?

  • Just to clarify, the seperate partition is empty and windows is installed on a different partition on that hard drive?

  • Then you should update your question main hard drive with windows could mean there is only windows on it, and all partitions belong to it.

You probably looked at the How to install to a harddisc documentation, you should be using use the dual boot option (assuming your separate partition is not used by Windows, see comment).
