Topic: [SOLVED] gparted ntfs resize bug (shrink)
After hours of looking for a way to solve my ntfs resize issue, I finally find this forum which seems to have a solution (as seen here : http://gparted-forum.surf4.info/viewtopic.php?id=13937)
I got a new hard drive 160Gbytes with Win XP installed on it, and I wanted to make some free space to put Ubuntu 10.04.
I used gparted and wanted to shrink the ntfs partition. Everything appeared to run fine until I restarted the computer and I got the blue screen coming from Windows (UNMOUNTABLE ....).
Finally, I went in Gparted again (the one provided with Knoppix) and it appeared that I have the following error : "current ntfs volume size bigger than device size"
parted /dev/sda unit s print gives the following :
Model: ATA FUJITSU MHZ2160B (scsi) Disk /dev/sda: 312581808s Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: msdos Number Start End Size Type File system Flags 1 63s 240974s 240912s primary fat16 2 240975s 148729769s 148488795s primary ntfs boot
and fdisk -u -l gives the following return :
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders, total 312581808 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x90ec90ec Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 63 240974 120456 de Dell Utility /dev/sda2 * 240975 148729769 74244397+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
here is the file containing PBR from /dev/sda
I am not sure of what to change in the file as in this case, my partition is /dev/sda2
May someone help me to put the right change in the PBR that I have uploaded here :
I hope you can help me !
