I would like to extend my Windows 7 partition to take up the remaining space on the drive that I've got the Win 7 partition on (currently 100GB unallocated).
I've read some tutorials and tried method two where it has me try to do it with an elevated command prompt, however that didn't work. The first time I tried it, it said that it worked but it never really did, and when I tried it a second time it told me there was no space to allocate.
Anyway, my system is divided like this:
C:\ holds my Vista installation
E:\ is partitioned into 3 drives, one of them being the Win 7 drive and 100GB of unallocated space.
When I use disk management in Vista, and right click on the Win 7 partition to extend it, it's grayed out so I can't do it that way. That is why I tried it with the elevated command prompt.
I also read the suggestion to use Partition Wizard, so I burned it to a bootable disk and rebooted into partition wizard, however as soon as it starts it gives me a big warning that says if I resize or whatever a partition that has Windows 7 on it, then I will no longer be able to boot into that partition/drive.
So I am stumped.
Here is a snapshot of disk management to help you understand what I've got, and hopefully somebody can help me so that I can extend the 40GB windows 7 partition to become a 140GB partition:
