Ok, I'm sorry. I had to choose swapoff for the swap partition. Now I can resize anthing. So, I want to resize the extended partition with the 35GiB unallocated? Or do I want to delete sda5 (linux-swap) first?
You want to delete the swap and extend the other with the free space. Isn't 35GB enough space for a OS X partition though? Do what you want, but if you've got that much space and gotten that far without messing up your boot I'd go ahead and start installing OS X.
Ok, I think I have it. Does this look right?
Hah, I'm sure I will. I'm looking for some kind of guide on installing it. Don't I need to know all of my hardware, etc etc before installing?
No, that would be a bad move, Justin... He can keep his swap partition, since it is inside the extended, and resize his extended, so that it uses up all the free space, and the free space gets moved where its inside his extended as well. After that, he could create the partition he needs out of the free space in the extended.
Thanks for the comments. Is there some reason I shouldn't re-instate grub. It worked perfectly for me between ubuntu and win7. Coolname suggested I use easybcd to load osx which I can still use after grub loads.
Besides, I can't get easybcd to load ubuntu so I don't think I have another option.
Yeah it doesn't require Vista's bootloader to be primary in control, but doing it this way well leave with a 2-menu boot proccess everytime you want to load Windows or OS X. If you make Vista's bootloader primary, you should be able to use EasyBCD for adding entries for all your OSes, so that you hopefully get one neat menu that can boot any one you select on the spot.
Well, I have(had) windows booting automatically(after 3 seconds) anyways. I just press "ESC" to open grub menu.
That doesn't matter now...I have a problem. Apparently updating wasn't the source of my boot problem. I need the osx install disk loaded in order to boot it. I googled it and I need to make the partition active.
I tried using diskpart from the command line to set it to "ACTIVE" but I get the error "The specified partition type is not valid for this operation." The osx partition is logical currently.
One more partition problem to figure out...
