    Change primary partition size

    Cedric FRANCOIS Apprentice

      Hello,

       

      When i make my OSD Image (using imageW.exe) the C partition size (used for system) was fixed to 20Gb. But now my HDD size has grown and the Windows directory grows too, i would like to change the system size without changing my image.

       

      I search and found that the partition is creatd from WIPEDISK0.txt diskpart script with no defined size. Should I change this script or is there a better way or a working way ?

       

      Regards

          couple ways you can do this:

           

          after your image is laid down, just add another diskpart function like this:

           

          REMEXEC25=ldrun i:\imagew.exe /r /o /d:0 /f:"""i:\Images\Image.TBI""" /rb:0
          REMEXEC26=diskpart /s I:\DiskPart\osdprep.txt
          

           

          in your osdprep.txt you can use the extend command (assuming you are using LANDesk 9.0+ that uses WinPE 2.1):

           

          select disk 0
          select volume 1
          extend size=20480
          

           

          this would make your partition 40 gigs

           

           

          you can also use the builtin switches from imagew.exe

           

           

          /rs:n
          
          Use this parameter to resize a partition after restoring. n is the size in MiB’s that you want to establish for the restored partition.
