Recently, I've tried making a disk partition for Windows 7 (Bootcamp was not working). Made a new partition - decided I accidently gave it more space than I wanted and now this happened:
I've heard Disk Utilities can't get rid of it, so I downloaded iPartition and it doesn't seem to be able to do it either.
Can someone please help?
P.S. Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.. "Expanding" seemed to be the only good option.
There is no Recovery Mode. There is a Recovery HD if you run Lion or later, and need to boot from it in order to make changes to the startup drive.
Boot Using Command+R keys:
1. Restart the computer.
2. Immediately after the chime press and hold down the
"COMMAND" and the "R" keys together.
3. Release the keys when the Utilities Menu appears.
To open Disk Utility simply select it from the menu of options then click on the Continue button. I think you may need to try doing this:
Click on the Add [+] button. This should create a new partition in the Empty Space. It should be possible, now, to change the sizes of each partition. If so, then select the bottom partition and click on the Delete [-] button. Now see if you cannot expand the upper partition to its full size. If you still cannot do this then the drive is too corrupted to do anything with but re-partition it from scratch.
Does your computer happen to have a Fusion Drive installed?
