Using GParted to Resize Your Windows Vista Partition

Postby TeMerc » Thu Aug 09, 2007 12:33 am

One of the more advanced options for resizing your Windows Vista partition is to use the GParted Live CD, a bootable linux CD that takes you straight into GParted, the great linux utility for managing partitions. The problem is that if you resize your boot/system partition, you will be completely unable to boot without repairing windows.

First make sure that you have a bootable Windows Vista installation DVD, as you will be unable to use your computer if you don't. Next, download the GParted Live CD and burn it to cd.

We are happy to announce that stable GParted Live 0.3.7-7 is available!
Some improvement:
1. New GParted (0.3.7).
2. Newer kernel 2.6.24-7 is used.
3. Network modules were added so that PXE booting will work.

Both of them are available here.
Remember to check the LiveCD and LiveUSB webpages for more details.
