I have a laptop with VMware that I use for product demos, testing stuff & evaluating software.
I have several virtual OS all working fine. But in one of them, a WinXP SP2, I am running out of virtual disk space on the boot partition. I am trying to resize this partition but I have read somewhere that it may not be possible to run fdisk or diskpart directly on the guest OS...
I could just create a brand new Guest OS with a larger partition and move/ghost the stuff over, but I would prefer to keep this one, as it is all nicely setup for the demos & tests, rather than starting from scratch. I am sure you experts will be able to help.
- VMware Workstation v4.5.2
- Host OS: Windows XP Pro 5.1.2600, SP2, all patched.
- Guest OS: Windows XP Pro SP2 and mostly up-to-date
- Guest Partitions (virtual disks, i.e. NOT "physical disks"): C: NTFS 3.0 Gb and E: NTFS 1.5 Gb
Thanks in advance,
