How to resize system partition under these circumstances?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a dualboot system win7/osX that runs very smooth.


Problem is that i require now more space for applications on my osX system partition. it's not gonna be so easy to resize.


It's an MBR partitioning with the following layout:



[sytem reserved 100MB NTFS] - [Win7 System 260GB NTFS] - [extended partition [shared_data 10GB FAT32]] - [OsX System 25GB journaled HFS]



What's the easiest way to go to shrink my Win7 partition and enlarge my osX partition without damaging my dual boot setup?

Have you tried gparted? download and write to dvd the iso of an ubuntu distro, then start it in live cd mode, or use a usb key. you find it in system --> administration --> gparted. i think you have to install a package for manage hfs and hfs+ partitions, search in google 'cause i don't remember...



but i think that at this time you have already solved the problem ahah
