Default Resize Windows & mac partitions? - 07-16-2010, 05:20 PM

In the past I resized the partitions on a PC that had Windows XP & Ubuntu. Using an Ubuntu live CD (on a flash Drive) can I repartition a hard drive that has Windows 7 and Mac OS 10.6.1? It is in a Dell Mini 10v that I just bought on eBay. Thanks.

Does this work without any issues to the OSes that have to boot?

Actually, be careful with Mac partitions. You'll find that it's a simple matter to shrink them; but nearly impossible to increase their size. In fact, I don't know of a way, though I did at some point come across a paid app that claimed the .... I didn't buy it; so I don't remember what it was.

I would suggest you to use an automatic hard-disk partition tool that will automatically divide the hard disk space in most secured way. However, if you have enough technical skill then you may even try on your own.
