Parition Configuration Problem

Hello, everyone.

 

I am having a bit of trouble with partitioning off a section of my HD in order to install an OSx86 program and I've run in to a bit of a problem. Seems as if, a while back, I decided to merge my entire harddrive in to a single partition. I'm trying to create a new one (Using Vista) but I've run in to a hitch. For some odd reason, I have a very (very) small unallocated section of my HD (9 MB haha). I'm trying to shrink the larger section (approx. 186 GB) so that I can allocated the minimum 6 GB to dedicate to Leopard. But the shrink option under the disk management program in Vista will only give me 4 GB. Is there some sort of program I can download in order to relieve this problem? I read on the wiki about Partition Magic 8 but it doesn't seem to be cooperating with Vista (32-bit, if that makes a difference).

 

Thanks you very much!

Thanks for the help. I've been trying to extend/shrink the current partition and the unallocated space but it has convinced me more and more that Microsoft is releasing broken OS's. It's absolutely ridiculous.

Boot to the vista disc and then goto startup repair. Or you could try changing the boot flag. When you partition and have a ne wpartition before vista partition it changes its location, so you use startup repair to change the bcd to point to the new locations. Its all automatic.
