GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 0.8.5

 

Partition table scan:

MBR: protective

BSD: not present

APM: not present

GPT: present

 

Found valid GPT with protective MBR; using GPT.

well i deleted 1 2 and now moved hfs partition at beginning of the disk with Gparted system boots ok, and it has the free space at final of the disk.

 

Now i want to resize hfs+ up to 300 gb it has now 140 gb now, and left 20 gb for write there a dmg image of the system for restore the system in the future with time machine.

 

Disk structure now:

 

 

GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 0.8.5

 

Partition table scan:

MBR: hybrid

BSD: not present

APM: not present

GPT: present

 

Found valid GPT with hybrid MBR; using GPT.

 

 

localhost:bdb~$ diskutil list

/dev/disk0

#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER

0: GUID_partition_scheme *320.1 GB disk0

1: Apple_HFS MLion 149.7 GB disk0s5

Finally done and solved :thumbsup_anim:

 

Assuming you have MBR scheme

 

Steps I followed

 

1. install gdisk http://sourceforge.n...jects/gptfdisk/

2. Open Terminal and type: sudo gdisk /dev/disk0 (diskX , X= disk you want to change)

Then press: gdisk will give you a warning , type r (recovery/transformation, then press f , and confirm with Y.

Then press m to exit to main menu and press w to write the guid partition, and press Y to confirm.

 

It will give you GPT with protective MBR.

 

3. Finally i booted my old lion retail disc, and repair disk , then i resized with no problem and i made the restore partition.

 

diskutil list:

 

 

 

/dev/disk0

#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER

0: GUID_partition_scheme *320.1 GB disk0

1: Apple_HFS MLion 300.0 GB disk0s1

2: Apple_HFS System Restore 19.8 GB disk0s2
