I am running a MacOS 10.4.7 virtual machine on my Windows 7 computer, with Vmware Workstation 7. The install itself works fine, but I have one problem. To get the virtual machine, I copied my friend's VM files and opened them with my VMware. However, the size of his virtual hard disk he had the OS installed on is only 5GB. I tried increasing the size in VMware, but the MacOS is unable to increase the size of its partition in the disk utility for whatever reason. I heard that it was possible to "migrate" the MacOS to a new, larger virtual hard drive with Symantec Ghost, or some other similar application. However, I cannot seem to get it to work. If anyone knows how to do this, I would be grateful if you could explain how to do it, and what program to use.
I'm dubious that a program can expand the size of a formatted partition if it doesn't understand the format of that partition. I can understand that it may be able to make an identical copy of a partition, but a larger copy?
Whatever, Carbon Copy will do this job from within OS X, and is free.
