How to extend boot partition

by hiteshhansalia In reply to Extend Win2K server boot ...


With SCSI Hard drive Installed use utility like Array Manager you can extend the size of a partition only on Dynamic Disks and only if there is available space right after the end of the partition and not in another part of the disk. You can define the size of the extension; don't worry it won't take all the available space!

You can not use PartionMagic 8.0, 7.0 or 6.0 to resize your partitions because there is a limitation for the server versions of Windows into their software! This is because they have another product called Volume Manager, which is more expensive ...?

But, you can use PartitionMagic 5.0 or 4.0 on a bootdisk to do the same job and it works just fine! Start by resizing your Data Partition in order to free space upon extending your System Partition.

Good Luck & Best regards
