trying diskpart to extend boot partition. having trouble accessing hard drives using ntfs bootdisk
Posted on 2008-01-30
I want to extend the space on my C drive (boot partition) from 12G to 60G (the rest of the space on the disk). I have a dell poweredge 2800 server with windows 2003 server running. I do not want to reinstall the OS. I read how to do it using diskpart.exe from the command line, but the trick is I can't do it while the OS is booted. So, I tried to use an NTFS bootdisk (Windows setup CD) but it does not recongize my SCSI hard drives during the setup phase and I do not have a floppy drive on the system to provide the drivers it needs. So my question is: 1) How can I provide SCSI drivers during Windows setup phase using a USB drive or CD Drive? or 2) how can I extend my boot partition without using diskpart.exe?
