Disk space is missing after Hackintosh partition resize

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I posted this issue to another forum a few days ago but could not get any help. Hope somebody can help me here. 

I wanted to extend my Hackintosh partition size from 150G to 300G. For this purpose I deleted Ubuntu partition located just after Mac partition by using Disk Utility (just pressed "-" button on Disk Utility while Ubuntu partition is selected, than pressed apply button). Everything seemed to go well until I realized that the newly added 150GB is marked as "used" in Disk Utility. I couldn't find any solution to claim this space. Furthermore the new partition size shown in Disk Utility is not consistent with the terminal output of df -kh . On Disk Utility screen new partition seems to be ~300G as expected (except for 150G of "used" space). On the other hand, terminal output shows the original size before I extended the partition (~150G). Any idea how I can claim this space? Thanks in advance.

 

Update: When i right click on the macos partition on Finder and hit "get info" i get old partition size again.
When i check the partition with Ubuntu live usb, gparted shows this warning: "146.48 GiB of unallocated space within the partition."

Hi and welcome to InsanelyMac.

 

Create a backup of your system using CCC, and install from scratch. You'll avoid headaches. ;)

Allan thanks for your quick response. Actually I had already a lot of headaches during Mojave installation. I don't want to go through that again. But unless somebody offers a better solution, I think your suggestion will be my only option.

Hey, put your Hackintosh specs, that will be more easy to help you.

Allan, I'm not experienced in the area. Forgive me if this is a silly question, but what do you mean by "Hackintosh specs"? What kind of info should I put?

Your hardware specs, like CPU, GPU, motherboard, etc...
