How Do I Resize My Partitions?

Recommended Posts

I have a 40 GB hard drive with 2 partitions - Windows XP and Ubuntu. Currently the XP partition takes up waaaaaaay too much space, I need more of it on Ubuntu so I was going to downsize my XP partition and enlarge my Ubuntu partition. I thought this was going to be a simple task, apparently not.

 

I have tried the Ubuntu Live CD. The partition editor on it freezes when you apply your requested changes (and yes I have tested this more then once).

 

I have tried using Gparted and Gnome Partition editor on Ubuntu, the options to downsize the XP partition are grayed out. Same goes for the disk management partition editor on XP.

 

I have tried using the Partition Magic boot up CD. I got an error.

 

I tried to use Disk Drake on PCLinuxOS installation CD but no matter what torrent or download I use, it's ALWAYS ALWAYS corrupted.

 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

I used partition magic within Windows and it went smoothly when I installed Vista. That could be the same thing as the boot up cd though <_<
