Parted Magic - LiveCD/USB/PXE

Parted Magic is a ~30MB LiveCD/USB/PXE with its elemental purpose being to partition hard drives. Although GParted and Parted are the main programs, the CD/USB also offers programs like Partition Image, TestDisk, fdisk, sfdisk, dd, ddrescue, etc...

If filesystem tools are what you are looking for, Parted Magic supports the following: aufs, ext2, ext3, ext4, fat16, fat32, hfs, hfs+, jfs, linux-swap, ntfs, ocfs2, reiserfs, reiser4, xfs, and zfs.

The latest version is updated with: Linux-2.6.20.2, parted-1.8.2, ntfsprogs-200702071432 with Vista support, ntfs-3g-1.0, and GParted-0.3.4.

The current Xserver is Xorg-7.2 with the following drivers: apm, ark, ati, atimisc, chips, cirrus, cyrix, glint, i128, i740, i810, mga, neomagic, nv, r128, riva128, radeon, rendition, s3, s3virge, savage, siliconmotion, sis, tdfx, tga, trident, tseng, vesa, vmware, voodoo.

Parted Magic is the continuation of the GParted LiveCD project that I originated (GParted LiveCD versions greater than 0.3.3 are now the work of LarryT), and falls under the terms of the GPL.

5/7/08 - Parted Magic 2.2.

This is another update/bugfix in the 2.0 series. I dropped VisParted because strong development is coming from the GParted camp once again. Recent updates to PCManFM have made some new things possible on the desktop and improved the look and feel. All mountable partitions and cdroms are fully supported from the desktop now, so it's never been easier to access files from Parted Magic. You will find most of the bad bugs and annoyances from 2.1 have been fixed.
