Running ESXi 5.0 and am trying to Edit Settings of a VM and extend the C partition but it is grayed out.  What do I need to do to enable this?

Hi Andrew,

It is not IDE and yes, I have several snapshots.  If I delete 1-2 snapshots will that do it?

Can you please use disk part to extend the disk.

Go to run and type diskpart ==> Then on the command prompt type list volume ==> then select volume (Volume name you want to extend) then type on extend

ALL SNAPSHOTS MUST be DELETED before RE-SIZE.

then you will be able to follow my EE Article. (it will then not be greyed out!)
