I cloned and enlarged an existing virtual CentOS-6 disk by the following steps:
Create 15GB virtual disk and mount the old and the new disks in GParted.
In GParted copy boot, swap and ext3 partitions from the old disk to the new one.
Mark the new boot partition with boot flag.
Resize the new ext3 to bigger size.
I disconnected the old disk and connected the new one.

I was trying to resize an Ubuntu partition with gparted to create a restore partition. gparted Say's the whole hard drive is unallocated. f disk shows all three partitions (Ubuntu, swap and home.) i had Linux mint Debian installed before and had problems with the partitioning. Is there a way to fix this without reinstalling my setup?
The GParted application is the GNOME partition editor for creating, reorganizing, and deleting disk partitions.
A disk device can be subdivided into one or more partitions. The gparted application enables you to change the partition organization on a disk device while preserving the contents of the partition.
I don't know what I was thinking, but I partitioned my external like this (see attached screen grab). I want to resize the largest partition to take up the entire space of the disk. I'm doing something wrong and can't get gparted to give me the option to over take those unwanted spaces. I deleted the partitions and tried, made them the say format and tried...what am I missing?
