Maxsize Partition Win 7 Pro


For windows 8 Ive been using a powershell script to resize the main partition to max.

However I have found that the same does not work for Win 7 powershell. Does anyone know what else i can do or am I stuck.

Yes I am aware of using those methods. But thank you.

To expand the information:
I work for a school system that manages 2000+ device and Right now we are still evolving the system to hopefully use and AD Server and more but at this moment our infrastructure is not complete and I have to deploy manually device by device.

For our backup and Deployment I am keeping the image as small as possible and after deployment I run a script to resize the HDD to match.

So I guess my question is there a scripting way in Windows 7 Pro to achieve this?
