I'm having issues expanding a Server 2008 partition running on a RAID 0.

I had a dual boot situation where i was running a 100gb vista64 partition and a 50gb server 2008 partition.
I've since tried to shrink the vista 64bit partition and expand the server 2008 partition into the left over unallocated space.

But no dice, the "expand partition" option in disk management is not selectable. So I "force" deleted the vista64 partition rebuilt the MBR, tried again.. and nope.

Then I tried to do it via diskpart.exe in the cmd prompt, and it gave me the error that there wasn't enough available space on the selected disk, even if i just put "size=1". There is 99gbs of unallocated space I sure would like to use it.... ideas?
