    .... installing which distro? most distro installers will resize
    the win partition non-destructively

    I'm not sure this will do it, but when you defragged, did you
    do it in DOS, and use the /F switch for full optimization?
    I mean boot to DOS, holding down the CTRL key while booting
    and selecting "command prompt only", NOT a Win dosprompt.
