I have a virtual machine running Windows Server 2003 R2 Std 32bit which has one 15GB hard disk.
I extended the disk size by 15GB and restarted the virtual machine.
I checked disk management in Windows and there was a 15GB C: volume and 15GB unused space.
I ran diskpart.exe as follows:
select volume 0
The command prompt Window hung on extend, I left it for over a day and it did not change.
I checked disk management and DISK 0 is showing the size as being 30GB but the C: volume is still only 15GB.
I have found various articles on the internet advising to run "extend filesystem" as advised here: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/page-194981_36_0.html
but this does not work (see code).
I have tried to run gparted live (advised here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/2000_Server/Q_22409507.html
) but that does not work either as it see's the partition as 30GB so there is nothing to extend.
This MS article describes the problem I am having but is only for 2K and XP : http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;329826
Any ideas how I can resolve this?

The volume you have selected may not be extended.
Please select another volume and try again.
