VM Ware – Expanding a Disk and Extending a Boot Partition

I needed to make a virtual disk, with boot partition, larger.  I found that I could use the VM Ware Server utility, vmware-vdiskmanager.exe, to expand the disk:

C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Server>vmware-vdiskmanager.exe -x 20Gb “<path>\<name>.vmdk”

Next I needed to extent the partition.  There was only one partition, the boot partition, and that meant that I could not be booted into that OS to extend the partition to fill the disk.  I tried for far too long to use NTFSDOS and diskpart to get the job done.  In the end I realized that the easiest thing to do was configure a second guest OS to mount the drive with partition needing to be extended.  From this other guest OS I was able to use diskpart to extend the book partition:

Diskpart.exe

LIST VOLUME

SELECT VOLUME #

EXTEND

    A few years ago, my husband and I decided that we’d make our Christmas
    gifts. The Gentleman’s Willy Care Kit is another gift recommended for close partners only.
    or before you even think about applying for another credit card.

    Dust mites in bedding are killed within ten minutes by dryer heat,
    but it can be virtually impossible to get dust mites and
    their waste out of mattresses and pillows. As
    a dog owner you know how unpredictable dog odor can
    be. Yet not all deliver and some do more harm than good.

    Firstly, the cost or the set price you have for buying the wrist watch and secondly, the
    style that you’re looking for. The famous frogman line is for sale in a Japan yellow, Love The Sea and Earth green, and today even red.
    If you think a wristwatch is just for telling the time, then reconsider because your view is going to be blown to pieces.

    Great guests to get a karaoke party are enjoyable, outgoing, and are willing to poke
    fun at themselves. It is a typical issue with HD televisions that they are immensely challenging to install,
    understanding that problem only increases while using size of the television. A handy tip, build a code and marking system to identify your wires and all
    of the components before you begin laying things down.

    I’ve always used a pair of regular oven mitts or a dish
    towel to remove the hot baked items from my oven. Brownies are always yummy, but this brownie dessert tops them all with the added peanut butter.

    It can be not only combination of time and power level but also different
    automatic features like sensor reheat and defrost.
