I have a vmware disk with an extended partition and I have just added 20G from the SAN.  I would like to use diskpart to expand the entire partition to include the new 20G.

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

I was thinking there was a problem with extending an extended partition.....?

Perfect.  Per the second thread  "you need to first extend the disk at the hardware level."  How would this be accomplished?

How does your Windows detect the new space? When you get to Windows Disk Management is the space block located on the same drive?
