In Topic: How can I increase my Leopard partition size?

01 December 2007 - 03:05 AM

Hi, thanks all for help first of all.
Sorry for my english.
I had problems with partitions and all I did was step by step.
I have dual boot Leopard 10.5 flat img and Vista.
For OSX i use 160 GB HDD. From Vista Computer managment i make partition from the space left me on that disk after Leopard installed.
Then boot to Leopard. From Leopard DiskUtility format that partition to be Journaled OSX partition.
Then open Terminal and type this. Thanx too ZUZA.
--------------------------------------------------------------
diskutil list

that listed back 2 partitions with the identifiers: disk1s1 and disk1s2 (in other cases might be disk0...)

Now,

sudo diskutil mergePartitions "Journaled HFS+" New disk1s1 disk1s2

did the trick (New is the name, it will actually be ignored).

The first partition will be kept intact and the second one will be "merged" therefore you will loose all contents (I made sure it was empty before running the merge just in case).
---------------------------------------------------------------

After that open Disk Utility and select partition or disk you created. You will see that is bigger now.
Click to button Verify Disk. After that click to Repair Disk Permissions.
Reboot and pray.

I dont know is this help me to boot again to Leopard but that is all what i was dan.
Note: this is for all of you who try all tutorial posted before mine without luck. I hope that this will help someone.
Leopard flat-img 10.5, P35-DQ6, 2GB RAM, HD 2600 XT, Q6600.
