I did some P2V conversions a while back and ended up with a few servers that have the C: and E: drives on one single vmdk file.  Now I need to extend the C: partition, and I have software utilities to do this, but when I expand the vmdk file the space isn't allowed to be extended into from the C: drive.  I know without tools or software the C: drive on Windows 2000/2003 servers can't be extended, but I have the software.  Is it possible to expand the C: drive when both the C: and E: drives are in the same vmdk file?
