vista extend partition help





Srs2388
i was messing around with the partition tool in vista and now it will not let me combine two partitions Sad
the two decent sized partitions i want them as one.... how can i make it do that?

Unfortunately, Vista's built-in partition tool doesn't allow you to merge two partitions together without deleting one of the partitions. Therefore, to merge the partitions using Vista's built-in partition tool, you have to delete one of the partitions so that an unallocated space exist which allows you to extend an existing partition to a desired capacity.

Why not just delete both and create one new big partition? Or am I misunderstanding you?

PS: osx86dvd?? Smile

I normally use a program called partition magic when i need to modify anything on my partitions. It is able to resize and move partitions if necessary. You should try to get that somewhere

You stated that you have no data on either partition, I'm going to go with that assumption. Download a copy of the GParted Live cd (I recommend the older versions before they built it on gentoo especially for older systems) and delete the partitions then create a new partition. Be sure to have backups of ANY partitions on that harddrive before using partitioning software, errors occur and you may lose the partition table or something; if that happens testdisk included on the CD will help recover data.

I'll try that... im not really worried about data loss... if vista goes... oh well i'll install os x on the whole hard drive.
