Re: Gparted Live Boot from Vsphere

Have your read some of the tutorials on VMware resizing in the GParted Articles?

It is important to boot the VM using a live image in order to perform the resize, so you might need to add a line like bios.bootDelay = "5000" to your .vmx file so you can adjust the BIOS/UEFI to boot from devices other than HDD.
