Hopefully this is possible. I have 5GB's of free space before the
first partion on a windows box. So I want to resize the windows partition
to make use of that space, basically integrate it as part of the partition.
I have booted a couple of different ubuntu disks, and a live gparted disk.
But I keep getting the error:
busybox various versions (initramfs) unable to find a medium containing
a live file system.
The computer is a Sony Vaio Desktop PCV-RS430G
I've tried running acpi=off, noapic.
And the BIOS has very limiting settings to change.
And Idea on how to boot this thing and run Gparted??
And I don't have the option to boot from USB.
The only thing I can think of is pulling the drive, and partition it from
