Expand A Drive On Virtualized Windows 2008

I CAN’T belive how easy this was…Just crazy.

Basically, you enter vSphere and expand the HD.

Enter the server’s disk management and refresh.

Click expand on the drive you want to expand, click next a couple of times…and you are DONE!

Just follow these quick and easy steps here on

    It is essentially the same on hyper-v as well.

    On an older OS (XP/2003) you use GParted (gnome partition editor) to boot from and expand the partition.
