Badly last week I partitioned my mac disk to two partitions, one serves as the startup partition for Mac OS X and another one for backup and parallels images. I did this to make sure I can have the backup as I started playing a bit with Mac…and you never know what happens.
Currently my second partition has Windows Vista parallels images, which I use it all the time. Today I decided to install (again ?) Boot Camp and install Windows Vista on top of that, so that Parallels and Boot Camp can share the same file space, so that I can either dual boot using Boot Camp or run along side using Parallels using the same image files. But Boot Camp 1.2 immediately reported the error “the startup disk cannot be partitioned or restored to a single partition” upon opening.
Now, its time for me to merge the partitions and I need to find a tool to do this without actually wiping the whole disk as the default ‘disk utilities‘ does wipe everything in order to merge the partitions.
