How to expand c drive successfully


I used Partition Magic to resize my Windows Server 2003 disk on a Windows Vista PC with external device that connected the server 2003 disk on my PC. However the operation was partially done. my disk is divided into 4 partitions, c:, d:, e:, f: and i need to increase the size of the c: partition. Using PartitionMagic, it managed to reduce the size and move partitions D: e: and f: leaving partition c: with 10 gb of contiguous unassigned space. My last step was to increase the size of the c: partition using the now available free space.

The magic makes the change and then requires a reboot to put it into effect. every time i take the reboot option the program fails with the message: unable to finish.


How can I get my boot drive extended successfully?


I want to extend C: to 80GB which is originally just 12GB.
