I have my PC dual Booted (Vista Pre-installed) with XP and Vista. Vista is my C drive and XP is my D drive. I used Vista's built in Disk Management to shrink the volume in D, which freed up some unallocated space. I want to take that Unallocated space and use it to increase my Vista partition C drive. I wasn't able to extend the volume in the C drive Using the Vista D.Management as it is grayed out. I tried to install Norton's Partition Magic, but got an error 117 with something saying can't recognize disk drives(couldn't install). I tried using Parted Magic, but had the same problem. It will allow me to extend the D drive volume by using the unallocated space, but not the C Drive. I know there must be a way to do this. Please help. Thanks
