Topic: [SOLVED] Another "Current NTFS Volume Size is Bigger than Device Size"
Hello all, I hope that you can help.
I was attempting a resize of my only NTFS partition to a smaller size to leave room for a 50GB NTFS partition, a swap partition and an extended partition. All of which have been deleted except for my main partition, which you will see below. I was using SystemRescueCD version 1.3.2 that contains GParted v. 0.4.8. First time I have ever had a problem. Anyhow, I got the error message stating that my NTFS was bigger than the partition. I've noticed that others have had the same problem and they have been solved. So, I remain hopeful.
This is my fdisk -l -u output:
Disk /dev/sda: 320.1 GB, 320072933376 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38913 cylinders, total 625142448 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes

This is my parted /dev/sda unit s print:
Model: ATA FUJITSU MHZ2320B (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 625142448s

415424772 - 1 = 415424771

So far, this is what I have managed to gather. I think everything is correct.
From what I have read I will need to supply a PBR file and am in hopes that I can be guided through this part.
